Caravan Park

Here Are Some of the Issues You’ll Face…

Caravan Park

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or drowning in endless paperwork and compliance, you’re not alone. The planning system is complex and can be frustrating for business owners.

Putting together a Caravan Park application can be extremely hard and tiring and dealing with council can be a nightmare, not to mention the whole process can be very expensive in both time and money. Plus, we’re pretty sure, you have better things to do… That’s where we fit in!

It’s what we do, all day, everyday. With a team of 10+ highly knowledgeable and experienced town planners, property consultants, registered architect and draftsman we’re pretty good at what we do.

What Rules Do I Need to Comply With?

Having worked on many caravan park projects over the past 25 years common compliance rules and questions to consider are:


Environmental impacts– Environmental impacts such as stormwater drainage, bushfire vulnerability, and steep slopes must be carefully considered.


Car parking – Car parking can often be the deciding factor which can make or break your development. However, a council may be agreeable to your development providing alternative contributions towards public infrastructure in lieu of allowing a reduction to on site parking rate. How do you know what type of contribution or agreement is appropriate and how to you negotiate these solutions with your council?


Scale of development – Developers need to realise maximum returns on their caravan parks, and this can put them on a collision course with council, who want to see a lower density of development to preserve character. How do you go about reaching an ideal balance where you achieve economic returns but not at the expense of surrounding neighborhood character? Having a good rapport with councils can make a difference in getting your approval over the line.


Heritage conservation areas – New growth in small village suburbs that are likely to contain Heritage Conservation Areas can be very unpopular with local residents. However, a good appreciation of what constitutes a Heritage Conservation Area, and a sensitive design that would complement these areas, will result in positive contribution to the area, and less likelihood of resident objection. These are issues you will need elaborate upon if your proposed development is located within a Heritage Conservation Area.

Based on our 25 year history, we have a 98% success rate in achieving council approval. Of course this is based on following our proven systems and our 7 step formula. The key? Our Preliminary Planning Assessment, inclusive of your personal Project Strategy Session.

To get that success rate it has only come after helping over 12,000 people. We’ve worked hard to smooth out all the kinks before they appear by carrying out this Preliminary Planning Assessment (PPA) on your property. It works a treat, especially for what it can do for you, the journey of the project and its future.

We could make up a fantasied timeframe to wow you, but to be straight up the length of getting an approval is dependent on the project development type, the local council, who examines your application within council, location of the property within the local council and on the property itself, and the list goes on. The approval process will no doubt take longer than you expect because we are dealing with administrative red tape.

But what our team has done has studied the 12,000+ applications we have been involved in and analysed the 300+ flight years of team council approval experience to create a formidable system.
