January, 2020The redevelopment of Frankton Motor Camp at Yewlett Crescent to a
camping only facility is set to begin at the end of the month.
The Motor Camp will officially close at 5.00pm on 31 January 2020 and
will become a construction site with access by appointment only and for
Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) parks manager Graeme Davies
advised that ahead of the closure, the site will be fenced off and trees
around the campground will be trimmed to ensure the safe removal of
the cabins and caravans.
The site is expected to be cleared by 30 April 2020 ahead of a new
campground management lease which begins on 1 May 2020.
Following on from the Request for Proposal process last year, we
received a number of applications to take over the commercial lease
and play a key role in the redevelopment project, said QLDC
community services general manager Thunes Cloete.
We now have a shortlist of two applicants and are working through
commercial negotiations with those parties. When the site is
redeveloped, we expect it will provide modern, much needed camping
capacity for both domestic and international holiday makers in a great
location on the lakefront, Dr Cloete added.
It is anticipated the site will reopen as a camping only facility to
domestic and international visitors prior to the next summer season.
