Warragamba RV Friendly Site Gets the Green Light
Posted on: 02.11.2017
Recreational Vehicle (RV) users will soon have access to an RV friendly area within the Warragamba Recreation Reserve, with approval now granted for the establishment of the much anticipated site.
The Development Consent will allow people to stay overnight, for a maximum of two nights, in their self-contained motorhomes, caravans and campervans. (A self-contained RV has the capacity for holding fresh, grey and black water within the confines of the vehicle.)
Luke Johnson, General Manager said: “This is another great step for tourism in Wollondilly.”
Working towards opening the RV friendly site ahead of the December summer holiday season, Council will now proceed to establish the site through the installation of signage, an automatic boom gate, linemarking, and waste bins.
The site will be located within the car park area opposite the Boomerang Shelter and will benefit from the existing RV dump point located within the Reserve.
RV users will be able to access the facility via Farnsworth Avenue, with the automated boom gate installed at the entrance of the Reserve car park.
The boom gate will be open during daylight hours and overnight visitors will gain access to the site by contacting Council's after-hours service. This service will record visitor’s details and provide them with a pin code for entry through the boom gate.
This RV friendly initiative is a 12 month trial that will help inform a Shire-wide RV friendly strategy. It aims to provide additional tourism opportunities in Warragamba and help to strengthen the local economy by giving visitors the option of free overnight accommodation.
