1       Public Forum

1.1    Warrington Reserve Group

 

On behalf of the Warrington Reserve Group, Derek Onley tabled and spoke to the Reserve's concerns at the proposed tree debris removal.  Mr Onley commented that the Warrington Reserve Group would like Council to give consideration to only remove the trees if they were causing safety concerns as they felt that the fallen trees were an important part of the biodiversity of the area.

 

1.3    Jackie Hughes – Freedom Camping at Warrington Domain

 

Ms Hughes expressed her concerns to the number of freedom campers that had camped at the Domain over the season and commented on the impact that she felt they were having on the local Community.  She advised that she considered that the existing infrastructure such as the toilets and signage was inadequate. 

Ms Hughes advised that she did not like her children playing at the playground due to the number of people camping in the vicinity of it and people washing and changing in front of them.

Ms Hughes requested that Council give consideration to placing a restriction of vehicle numbers; a restriction to self-contained vehicles only and other reserves within the city opened up to freedom campers.

 

 

 

1.2    Rhys Owen – Freedom Camping at Warrington Domain

 

Mr Owen commented on freedom camping at the Warrington Domain and in particular the damage that the Domain had sustained over the season.  He reiterated Ms Hughes' suggestion on restricting camper numbers and vehicle type.

Mr Owen felt that the ability for the Domain to be used as a recreational area by the Community had been reduced considerable due to the volume of freedom campers using it.
