Decision Made On How Campsites Will Be Allocated At Popular Holiday Parks
Warrnambool City Council will this week begin a ballot process to allocate campsites at its Surfside and Shipwreck Bay holiday parks.
Guest numbers at the holiday parks will be limited this year as a result of COVID-19 regulations, necessitating a ballot as a fair means to allocate sites.
“In running a ballot we’re aiming to accommodate as many people as we can while keeping guests and staff safe,” Warrnambool City Council Acting Chief Executive Vikki King said.
“The ballot is about equity and safety, it provides all those who had pre-booked sites this summer with an equal chance of enjoying a week-long stay at Surfside or Shipwreck Bay" she said.
“It’s been a difficult decision to make but it is important to emphasise that we will still have about 1800 people across more than 500 sites enjoying the parks and supporting the local economy"
