FINALIST - ACCOMMODATION STARTS HERE 🌟🏆
We are thrilled to announce that we are a finalist in the 2020 Local Government Annual Leadership Excellence Awards in the category Excellence in Local Economic Development for our submission ‘Accomodation Starts Here’. 🏕🚎

Here is a summary of our submission:

“Kingston District Council is driving its own tourist accommodation destiny forward, through the acquisition of the only caravan park in town and the establishment of a selection of free or low-cost Recreational Vehicle (RV) Parks. Installing experienced & reputable managers, it has repositioned the local caravan park into a popular, improved and highly regarded accommodation offering.

Through Council’s vision of creating a thriving tourism destination, the local economy has seen significant stimulation, with an increase in annual occupancy at the Caravan Park from 45% to 60% and a 25% growth in RV Park ticket sales.

This bold solution to a tourism roadblock has been monumentally successful. The project achieved an immediate operating surplus, the ability to re-invest income from the RV Park, employment creation, economic stimulus and most importantly, financial autonomy, causing no upward pressure on a tiny ratepayer base.”

Winners will be announced on Friday 26 June 2020 - keep your fingers crossed and stayed tuned 🤞🏼🏆🥇
