Still un­happy about RV park ameni­ties

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

IT IS no sur­prise to me that the Lock­yer Val­ley Re­gional Coun­cil has de­clined to ex­plain their ir­re­spon­si­ble and waste­ful act of de­mol­ish­ing a struc­turally sound toi­let and shower amenity.

All it needed was a bit of re­fur­bish­ing and Gat­ton’s new RV park would have then be­came a valu­able as­set and be a real in­cen­tive to at­tract vis­i­tors to Gat­ton’s CBD.

The LVRC have in­stead opted to hide be­hind the plat­i­tudi­nous ut­ter­ances of a stooge (Star, Septem­ber 20).

Neville Binns im­plies that pro­vid­ing toi­lets and show­ers would en­cour­age vis­i­tors to “over­stay their wel­come”.

I have al­ready wit­nessed that very thing hap­pen­ing.

I have also ob­served a few ve­hi­cles en­ter the park, use the dump point, and then re­sume their jour­ney.

So much for the park bring­ing eco­nomic ben­e­fits to the re­gion.

It is also in­ter­est­ing to note that sev­eral ve­hi­cles that are clearly not self-con­tained have been us­ing the park.

I too have trav­elled and made use of such fa­cil­i­ties, Neville Binns.

Fa­cil­i­ties that pro­vide full ameni­ties have proved to be a great fi­nan­cial boon to many com­mu­ni­ties who have the great for­tune to be blessed with the pres­ence of en­light­ened and pro­gres­sive lead­er­ship.

Un­like Neville Binns and coun­cil­lor Jim Mcdon­ald, these en­light­ened com­mu­ni­ties are not mo­ti­vated by any de­sire to ex­clude the un­washed masses.
