Gentle Annie Caravan Park to be retained

leave a comment »

The future of Gentle Annie Caravan Park at Whitfield appears brighter following encouragement by DSE for the management to apply for a grant to upgrade the sewerage disposal system.

The future of the caravan park has been under a cloud for many months because the DSE refused to renew the lease on the caravan park because of concerns about the septic system.

However, the park management has been encouraged to apply for a grant to upgrade the system and if successful, there should be no impediment to renewal of the lease.

This is potentially good news for the many users of the Gentle Annie Caravan Park which is set on the banks of the King River at Whitfield – an idyllic setting for a peaceful break from the ‘rat race’.

Nationals Member for Benalla, Bill Sykes and Nationals Member for Murray Valley, Ken Jasper both inspected the caravan park yesterday at the request of concerned tenants, many of whom had been visiting Gentle Annie Caravan Park for many years.

Dr Sykes said, “Whilst the delays have been frustrating for all concerned it now appears that subject to the funding application being successful, environmental concerns can be addressed and Gentle Annie Caravan Park will continue to provide peaceful and relaxing holidays for local families and visitors for many years to come.

“I will maintain close contact with park management and continue to assist where necessary to ensure smooth continuation of Gentle Annie Caravan Park.”
