Still unhappy about RV park amenities
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.
