The Department of Local Government and Communities is seeking feedback from holiday makers and operators on Western Australia’s caravan and camping laws. 

A consultation paper inviting caravan users, campers, long-stay tenants and operators to comment on proposed changes to the Caravan Parks and Camping Grounds Act 1995 has been released.

Following analysis of the feedback received from a first round of consultation in May 2014, the second paper will present recommendations for development of the new legislation.

The proposed changes to the legislation include:

  • giving park operators longer licences, lower compliance costs and greater flexibility to meet consumer demands
  • giving users a greater choice and more affordable holiday options
  • providing simpler and flexible laws to meet the needs of the locality and to allow tourism to evolve and flourish.

The consultation paper is an initiative of the WA Caravan and Camping Action Plan, which is supported by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program to improve caravan and camping experiences in WA.

The consultation paper and a feedback form are available on the DLGC Website. Comments are welcome on all or part of the consultation paper. Feedback is open until 30 November.

For more information email caravan@dlgc.wa.gov.au or phone 6551 8700. Freecall 1800 620 511 for country callers.
