MID COAST COUNCIL - WORIMI LAND
Mungo Developments Pty Lty submitted DA2022/0834 to Council in early August 2022, with development plans to establish a 437 lot caravan park on the beach side at 288 Mungo Road, comprising of 342 short term lots and 95 reserved for occupation under the Holiday Park (Long Term Casual Occupation) Act. With plans to be marketed as a “bushland retreat”, the concept for the 15.03 hectare lot holds a large focus on short term tourist accommodation and does not seek approval for long term sites and via association permanent residents.
The location previously has received approval for a caravan park however the grant has since lapsed.
WHERE IS IT UP TO?
