Anglesea Family Caravan Park Master Plan

Anglesea Family Caravan Park Master Plan

Background

In July 2017, the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) resumed direct management of the Anglesea Family Caravan Park. GORCC committed to a major investment in the park, to be implemented through a consultative master planning process.

Initial camper, community and stakeholder consultation took place over January and February 2019, with an emphasis on identifying issues and opportunities that needed to be considered in developing the Anglesea Family Caravan Park Draft Master Plan.

The key themes identified included protecting and enhancing the character and natural environment of the park, increasing the number of pet-friendly sites, an upgrade to the pool area, the introduction of camp fires, and providing more entertainment opportunities in the park.

The draft master plan has been informed by feedback from this consultation, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s Improving Equity of Access to Crown Land Caravan and Camping Parks policy, GORCC’s Coastal and Marine Management Plan, and in response to increased visitation pressure to the Great Ocean Road.

As a result, the 10-year staged draft master plan focuses on:

  • enhancing camper experience
  • caring for and improving the natural environment and acknowledging the cultural heritage of the park
  • updating existing amenities and developing new facilities that model sustainable practices.

Community consultation

Feedback was open on the draft master plan until Friday 10 May 2019 and has since closed.

Three community consultation sessions were held at Anglesea Family Caravan Park throughout April and May. Feedback received during the consultation period will help inform the development and design of the final master plan.
