Kenilworth ensures camping is pegged in

THE Kenilworth Show, Hall and Recreation Grounds has submitted a development application to ensure their campgrounds are deemed legal by Sunshine Coast Council standards.
People have camped at the showgrounds for many years, but the committee recently needed to apply for a material change of use to continue providing the service.
Committee president, Shane Smith, said the camping grounds can still be used for camping by tourists and locals alike, however, it is unclear when the application will be approved.
“It has taken about two to three years to get all the necessary reports to put in an official development application,” he said.
“But I want to make it clear, in our application we are applying for everything we already have at the campgrounds, we are not adding anything new.
“The council haven’t stopped us from providing camping to people. They have been very helpful.”
