Gunnedah’s tourism industry has received a boost with a concept plan for a new Recreational Vehicle Park close to the CBD supported at last week’s Ordinary Council Meeting.
The Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA) plans to erect a Recreational Vehicle Park by the river at 107-109 Chandos Street and 65-67 Maitland Street.
The park will form part of a network of low-cost commercial RV parks across Australia, available to members of the CMCA and other RV users.
The recreational facility is specifically for self contained vehicles and with the exception of a single caretaker site there are no formal sites, helping cater to a wider range of vehicles.
Now that Council has agreed to concept, the project will be subject to a Development Application to be lodged in the coming weeks.
The proposal is in line with Gunnedah Shire Council’s destination plan, which focusses on supporting infrastructure and services that grow the tourism sector and improve the accommodation base of the Shire.
