Caravan Park Masterplans

Caravans and cars on sites next to red autumn trees.

We have developed Masterplans for the Shire’s four caravan parks located in Beechworth, Chiltern, Rutherglen and Yackandandah. 

The Masterplans support Council’s economic development and visitor economy objectives, optimising Council assets for the long term and maximising the contribution to the local economy, while delivering Council with a sustainable and robust direction for lease frameworks and future park management.

The Masterplans are a blueprint for the future of our Caravan Parks and will provide a foundation for development and investment. They address the current accessibility and sustainability standards within the parks, encompassing the ethos of future fit, both socially and economically.

Key outcomes

The key outcomes of the Masterplans are to:

  • Strengthen and improve the accommodation offering to the caravan and camping market, identified as a growth market within the Shire
  • Generate increases in visitor spend and create local job opportunities 
  • Drive long term recovery for the tourism industry and contribute to economic growth across the Shire
  • Develop a Lease Framework that will support Council to manage new and existing leases

The four Caravan Park Masterplans were adopted by Council on Tuesday 13 December, 2022.
