Caravan Park Business Plan

Through the adoption of the Council Plan 2022-2032, Council resolved to progress a business plan to determine the need and viability for the upgrading of the Boddington Caravan Park.

This project will involve two stages, being a needs assessment and business case to ensure that an evidence based approach is implemented.

The Needs Analysis (Stage 1) will involve:

  • Accommodation demand/supply analysis
  • Consideration of the current and potential product mix to meet demand and ensure financial viability and a positive user experience
  • Review and assessment of existing caravan park, noting any redevelopment requirements to ensure flexibility to “future proof” the development
  • Assess current management arrangements and provide alternative management options where appropriate
  • Determine opportunity for future staging of construction and development
  • Provide concepts for minimising construction and servicing costs
  • Consider potential to incorporate alternative uses for sites in the caravan park
  • Liaison with relevant industry stakeholders

 The Business Case (Stage 2) will involve:

  • Caravan industry research, best case examples, locational advantages and potential issues
  • Short and long-term market impacts of COVID-19 pandemic
  • Current market trends and market projections
  • Broad capital cost estimate of potential redevelopment – including construction and site services
  • Financial modelling including projected occupancy and yield
  • Estimated operational costs
  • Product mix variability outcomes
  • Cost benefit analysis
  • High-level social and economic impact analysis
