Rathmines Park Temporary Stay Policy

This petition had 1,240 supporters


We the community of Rathmines would like to ask Lake Macquarie City Council (LMCC) to revise their policy regarding ‘NO Temporary Stay Camping’. We propose ‘Temporary Self-Contained Camping’. This form of stay is more environmental and reduces the need for the council to maintain services to visitors.

This temporary stay classification has worked well all over Australia in allowing mainly the ‘Grey Nomad’ and similar style travellers to enjoy our fair shores in an environmentally responsible manner.

Rathmines need more people to provide a presence in its extensive grounds to reduce vandalism to common areas and bring revenue to our community businesses. When the campers were stopped from using our park we noticed a large increase in anti-social behaviour.

Please support this petition by adding your signature to bring back the peaceful village we remember.
