Consultation open 20 October – 21 November 2018

We’re consulting on a change to our Freedom Camping Bylaw that would allow freedom camping at the Fittal Street car park in Richmond.

The change would set aside about 17 spaces for both self-contained and non-self contained vehicles to camp at the car park, near the entrance to the Richmond Resource Recovery Centre. Time limits will apply.

There is already a campervan dump station and drinking water on the site, and we plan to install accessible toilets and a rubbish compactor as well.

Freedom campers can contribute to our region’s vibrancy and economy, but some campers misuse local facilities and can damage areas valued by the community. Providing facilities such as toilets and rubbish bins in specified locations can help manage the effects freedom campers have on our communities.
