Access Policy and Guidelines
Improving Equity of Access to Crown Land Caravan Parks
In July 2011, the policy statement Improving Equity of Access to Crown Land Caravan and Camping Parks 2011 was released by the Minister for Environment and Climate Change, the Hon Ryan Smith MP.
The policy seeks to ensure that affordable holidays on Crown lands are available to as many people as possible.
The policy does not apply to caravan and camping parks in national parks, on private land, on council-owned land, or to caravan and camping parks outside of Victoria.
Key changes to policy
- On-site sales of registrable caravans in Crown land caravan parks will now be allowed in specified circumstances.
- The requirement for Committees of Management (CoM) and park managers to achieve a minimum 10 per cent turnover of each type of site to new users each year or peak season, has been suspended until 1 July 2013.
Best Practice Management Guidelines
The Best Practice Management Guidelines for Committees of Management: Managing Caravan and Camping Parks on Crown Land have been developed to help committees of management plan for the future.
Crown land caravan and camping parks are managed by committees of management on behalf of the government, often on a volunteer basis.
The guidelines aim to assist committees of management and park managers to manage Crown land caravan parks according to best practice.
