No free camps for RV's likely

FREE camping in Coffs Harbour for self-contained recreational vehicles, especially the vexed question of camping on the Jetty Foreshores is on the agenda for tonight's meeting of Coffs Harbour City Council.

Council staff and State Government representatives have confirmed councillors have no authority to permit free camping by RVs on the Jetty Foreshores.

Councillors must now choose from five alternative options to deal with free camping for RVs in the Coffs Harbour LGA.

The alternative favoured by staff is to enforce the existing regulation, which forbids free camping on council-controlled reserves and allows for moving people on or fining them.

Two other aspects of tourism are on tonight's meeting agenda: tourism destination marketing and airport security screening.

Councillors will decide whether to remove an event from the 2013-14 events marketing budget and put the $20,000 saved towards hiring an independent consultant to find models to leverage better outcomes in destination marketing, with another $10,000 provided by Coffs Coast Tourism.

Seven firms have put in tenders to take over security screening duties at Coffs Harbour Airport once Qantas withdraws from the service on April 30 and Coffs Harbour City Council takes over.
