New manager's residence at Duvauchelle Reserve Holiday Park
30 October 2008
A new manager’s residence is to be built this summer at the Duvauchelle Reserve Holiday Park.
The existing manager accommodation is a combined garage/studio which the Duvauchelle Reserve Management Committee feels is too small and uncomfortable and could limit any future appointees to applicants who did not have a family to house.
The Council-owned camping ground is operated by the committee. It asked the Council to approve the construction of the new residence, with funding to come from camp operating surpluses - those held in reserve and those expected to be earned over the coming summer season. The total cost of the project is expected to be around $165,000.
The three bedroom home and office will join other projects that have been funded largely by profits from the running of the park. These include construction of a kitchen/washroom/toilet/shower block, a separate shower/toilet block, two cabins and undergrounds power connections for caravans and motor homes.
The old manager’s residence will remain on site and be available as part of the park’s rental pool.
“The management committee does a fantastic job of running the camp - as well as maintaining the children’s playground area, tennis/netball courts and pavilion, and the local Duvauchelle community centre,” said Michael Aitken, General Manager of Community Services.
“By upgrading the manager’s accommodation the committee is ensuring the camp will be able to offer high quality facilities to its current and future managers.”
