Ongoing lobbying for freedom camping

ANOTHER leading recreational vehicle lobby group has submitted an urgent letter calling on the City of Ballarat to establish freedom camping and free waste-disposal dumping points for caravans, campervans and motorhomes. 

The Fifth Wheeler Network said in its submission given to the council last week, that RV travellers need a place to park during short stays into tourist towns.

The group argued the proposal does give caravan parks a commercial advantage. 

“Our Club does not have a stake in the Ballarat issue as it is mostly considered by our members and many of the RV travellers in general to be a place for which only a short day visit is warranted,”the submission read. “ But it remains so it will simply continue not to be patronised to the extent of other more RV accommodating towns.”

The submission comes in the wake of delays in the council finding a resolution to the issue.

The proposals were deferred by the council earlier this month.
