No RV joy at Bauple after petitioners' requests knocked back

THE saga over a recreational vehicle site at Bauple goes on, with the council refusing petitioners' requests.

A petition signed by about 328 Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA) members asked the Fraser Coast Regional Council to build a dump point, make an existing site at the recreational grounds the town's primary RV site and provide appropriate RV signage on the Bruce Hwy and in Bauple.

Chief petitioner Marc Bromet addressed the council at Wednesday's meeting, asking it to not make a final decision on the petition because of an ongoing ombudsman review.

Mr Bromet's request was denied.

The council voted to accept Fraser Coast chief executive officer Lisa Desmond's response - that no dump point could be provided because there was no sewer system, that there were three RV sites in Bauple with the recreational grounds available to RV chapters and that signage was handled by the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Division 2 councillor Phil Truscott was the sole councillor to vote against the petition response.
