The search for a location for a caravan and boat storage facility has widen-ed from the one originally mooted at the old tip at Crooked River. The Water Board site at Kiama Downs or other sites on private or council owned land are possibilities.
“It is recognition that this is a growing issue in our community,” says Mayor Brian Petschler. “People have to walk onto the road to get around caravans or boats illegally parked on the footpath.”
It is thought that a storage facility like the one in Heathcote would be very popular, not only with locals but with people who regularly visit on holiday.
The fine for parking on the footpath in a built-up area is $101.
Council’s rangers are responsible for enforcing the legislation, and have a policy of issuing a Notice to Comply before penalties are imposed.
