The WA caravan parks and camping grounds legislation specifies the length of time a person can camp on land which they own or are legally permitted to camp on. The legislation states that a person may camp for no longer than three consecutive days in any 28-day period. The rationale behind this is to effectively manage public health concerns such as potable water supply and liquid and solid waste disposal as well as the need to provide a minimum habitable standard.
Amendments to the Shire’s planning scheme now allow caravan parks / camping in agricultural zones with consent from the Shire’s planning team.
If you are interested in obtaining information regarding this, please contact the Shire’s Planning Unit first by phoning 9780 5255 and asking to speak with a planning officer.
Planning applications to establish a nature based park are to be accompanied by a management plan. The Department of Local Government and Communities publish a management plan template.
The Nature Based Parks Licensing guidelines for developers and local governments is another good resource if you are considering this type of development.
