Lancelin Caravan Park proposals set for April

The Shire of Gingin says it has selected two developers to present their proposals for the Lancelin Caravan Park.

THE Lancelin Caravan Park is another step closer to redevelopment with the Shire of Gingin asking two developers to present their proposals to the council in April.

President David Roe said the shire was providing interim management at the Lancelin Caravan Park (formerly known as Lancelin South Caravan Park) due to the end of the previous lease and was partnering with Tourism WA to redevelop the site into an attractive coastal tourist destination.

Cr Roe said since the shire had started managing the park on October 1, 2016 expressions of interest for the park’s redevelopment had been received from prospective developers.

“Out of the submissions received during the expression of interest phase, two developers with the skills, design experience and financial resources to redevelop and operate a sustainable and functional tourist park have been selected to present their proposals to the council next month,’’ he said.

“A committee will then recommend one of the entities to enter into a new lease with the shire, subject to approval from the Lands Minister.

“The shire will announce the successful applicant, along with any other information, once the decision has been made.’’

The new Lands Minister is Rita Saffioti who also has the Transport and Planning portfolios.
