Caravan association still fighting Rocky council over Kershaw

LEGAL action to stop Rockhampton Regional Council in relation to free camping at Kershaw Gardens is still before the courts.

The Caravan Parks Association of Queensland Limited (CPAOQL) submitted an application late last year against the council and the State Government to cease all operations at the large camping ground on Moores Creek Rd.

The case was set for its first mention in the Environment and Planning court in Brisbane on February 1 where a review date was set down for June 6.

CPAOQL filed the application on December 11 claiming it was "unlawful use" of the land and requested a Material Change of Use of the 2.18 hectare property opposite Stockland Rockhampton.

Other requests outlined in the papers filed with the court show CPAOQL also request council erect signs along High St and Moores Creek Rd to advise travellers the free camping was no longer available, along with advertisements about the same advise in media outlets and online.

The organisation has also requested council pay its costs involved in the legal action.
