As part to the Tourism WA's WA Caravan & Camping Action Plan, 2013-2018, a concept plan for a new holiday park nestled between the Dawesville Channel and the Peel Estuary has been prepared. The plan develops a degraded, reclaimed site, into a superb, low impact tourism asset that will deliver a quality caravanning and camping experience to WA holidaymakers and bring substantial ongoing benefits to the Mandurah community for generations to come.

The holiday park concept retains the significant vegetation along Thisbe Drive, Port Bouvard, which will screen the development from the road and local residences. Public foreshore access is improved and there is around 20% more open space for this proposed concept than for most other quality tourist holiday parks in Western Australia.

There will be tourist caravan and camping sites, including ensuite sites and drive-through sites and areas for self-contained RV's. Tourist cabins, safari tents and tree houses are to be available for those that don't own their own caravanning or camping gear.

As always there is resistance from local residents. So, if you want to see parks like this built at great waterfront locations in Western Australia, go to the Port Bouvard Community Holiday Park Facebook Group page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/portbouvardholidaypark/ New Holiday Park for MandurahNew Holiday Park for Mandurah and "like" the holiday park concept plan post.

You joined Exploroz yesterday to post what appears to be nothing more than an ad for a proposed development: "The plan develops a degraded, reclaimed site, into a superb, low impact tourism asset that will deliver a quality caravanning and camping experience to WA holidaymakers and bring substantial ongoing benefits to the Mandurah community for generations to come....As always there is resistance from local residents."

Cynics might guess that you have an interest in this development. Feel free to correct me.

Compare "your" plan with this proposal for public use and some might see why there could be local resistance. I have no interest either way but I prefer honesty to being led up garden paths.

Brighthouse have posted something quite similar.

Thanks Bazooka
Our interest in the project is to see access and equity in terms of coastal holidays for all Western Australians (and others), who may not be able to afford to live at such great locations or holiday in hotels or resorts.
It would be a bit premature to be promoting the development as the plans are a long way from being finalised or accepted for the project to proceed. We are merely seeking public comment, including that from caravan park users. Hence the post on ExploreOZ.
We have no commercial involvement in the project other than providing Tourism WA a prefeasibilty study and concept plan for their
and local government review.
Our tourism consultancy is Brighthouse.
Regards
David

Thanks David. Have never understood the need for people to play games when a simple bit of up-front honesty would not only suffice but would ensure no-one feels misled. Florid language plays a part in that but disclosure plays an even bigger part.

Beautifly rendered drawings....but why circles....what possible practical benifit is there to circles on a site that is not circular particularly when the roads don't join up into complete circles.

Circles on non curcular parcels produce wasted space at every single junction

Don't ya just love these archietects obsession with introducing regular geometric shapes where they have no practical function.

Surely a road plan that fits with the shape of the alotment would be more efficient and cheaper to construct than a plan where 90% of everything is curved.

And why would the single major building on the site not be constructed near the entrance rather than the furthest point from it.
This lay out means thet every person using that bulding or delivering goods to it need to drag thru the whole park to do so.


AS far as no commercial interest........HELL...you are the CONsultant trying to put up a proposal that files........if it is not accepted and does not gain support....well ya not going to get the next job are you.

I got no beef with building a caravan par on reclaimed land.

But hell there are some ordinary people on this forum that could come up with a better lay out and a better approach.

cheers
