Caravan Parks to close
Murray River Council is closing its caravan parks across the municipality, in line with the gazetted public orders from the NSW Government.
The NSW Minister for Health and Medical Research, The Hon Brad Hazzard has directed that the following must not be open to members of the public:
Caravan parks and camping grounds, except for purposes of—
(i) accommodating permanent residents of the caravan park or camping ground or other persons who have no other place of permanent residence, and
(ii) allowing visitors to visit persons referred to in subparagraph (i)
Council will also proceed with the closure of outdoor facilities including playgrounds, skate parks, public BBQs and tennis courts.
Murray River Council General Manager Des Bilske said the closures are in line with the extended restrictions to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
“Whilst we acknowledge that this is difficult time for all - especially our local business owners - our Caravan Parks will now be closed following greater restrictions on non-essential travel.”
“Council is liaising with Park owners to manage the closure process,” Mr Bilske said.
Public amenities, such as public toilets will remain open at this stage.
NSW National and Regional Parks are now also closed to campers.
