Council amends Montagu Park fees

17 August 2018

Circular Head Council has considered public feedback from Monday night’s public information session and revised the fee structure for Montagu Park Recreation Reserve.

A late item was added to the agenda for last night’s Council meeting to amend the fees for the popular camping ground for the 2018/19 financial year.

Key changes include a reduction in the fee increase to assist in affordability, but also help to reduce the current deficit for the site and a return to a per person charge to reduce the confusion caused by “per site” that was originally proposed.

Council also committed to involve members of the community in a working group to develop a 5 Year Plan for the Montagu Park Recreation Reserve; and commit to an ongoing caretaker role on the site for the peak season until the 5 Year Plan is developed.

General Manager Scott Riley said from the information session held in the Council Chambers on Monday it was evident that there were a lot of passionate people that have connections to the park in various ways.

“The quantum of increase in each category was one of the key questions at the information session in terms of affordability,” Mr Riley said.

“Council has taken this into consideration and has found a mid-point in pricing that will assist in affordability, but also help reduce the current deficit for the site.”
