The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

At an Ex­tra­or­di­nary Meet­ing held on Tues­day, May 29 Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil re­solved to award the Ball Park Car­a­van Park ten­der.

Bel­gravia PRO was the suc­cess­ful com­pany who ten­dered for a fix price of $579,000 (GST ex­clu­sive) and a vari­able price of 10% (GST in­clu­sive) of in­come for an 18 month pe­riod.

Re­solved on the mo­tion of coun­cil­lors Lon­g­ley and Kennedy, dis­cus­sion and a vote was held in closed ses­sion with the res­o­lu­tion an­nounced to con­clude the meet­ing.

The ten­der re­port was con­sid­ered in a closed ses­sion, due to com­mer­cially in-con­fi­dence in­for­ma­tion as re­quired un­der sec­tion ten of the Lo­cal Govern­ment Act 1993, with Cr Long­mire re­quest­ing to have his vote against the res­o­lu­tion pub­li­cally recorded.

Coun­cils ex­ist­ing long-term con­tract for the Man­age­ment of the Ball Park Car­a­van Park Corowa comes to an end on June 30 this year.

Coun­cil re­solved at their De­cem­ber 2017 meet­ing, to call ten­ders for the man­age­ment of this park, on a shorter term ar­range­ment, to al­low for the swim­ming pool de­vel­op­ment to pro­ceed, and also fur­ther plan­ning for the park it­self.

The new model is aimed to al­low coun­cil more vis­i­bil­ity on the fi­nan­cial as­pects of the park busi­ness and to al­low more in­formed de­ci­sions with re­spect to a fu­ture op­er­at­ing model when the shorter term con­tract ex­pires.

Bel­gravi­aPRO is a joint ven­ture between Bel­gravia Leisure and PRO Man­age­ment, and is a spe­cial­ist man­age­ment provider in the car­a­van­ning, camp­ing and hol­i­day park in­dus­try.

Bel­gravi­aPRO also owns PRO Man­age­ment’s Reg­is­tered Train­ing Or­gan­i­sa­tion (RTO), de­liv­er­ing na­tion­ally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions in parks, re­sort and tourism op­er­a­tions and man­age­ment.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil In­terim Gen­eral Man­ager Adrian But­ler thanked cur­rent park op­er­a­tors, An­drew and So­nia Palmer for their com­mit­ment and ser­vice of the park over the last ten years.

“An­drew and So­nia have been an in­te­gral part in build­ing the pro­file of Ball Park Car­a­van Park over the last ten years,” Mr But­ler said.

“We thank them for their com­mit­ment to the park and its pa­trons and wish them all the best in their fu­ture en­deav­ours.”
