The introduction of two new cabins at McLean Beach Caravan Park has boxed in an annual resident of the park.TYLA HARRINGTON January 7, 2014 4:50am
Sharon and David Little's cabin at McLean Beach is now boxed in after two new cabins were placed infront of theirs.
Sharon and David Little say the introduction of two new cabins at McLean Beach Caravan Park has meant their cabin is now ‘‘boxed in’’, with limited access to the rest of the park.
The Littles, who are from Narrawong, Victoria, bought the cabin last April.
Mr Little said they bought it only after the previous owners said it was only campers who, on occasion, would stay at the back of their cabin.
However, their cabin, which did look out to the Edward River, now has the view of two new cabins.
The view is not the only problem according to the Littles, who say they have little access to the rest of the park.
A road, which previously ran in front of their cabin, now stops where the two new cabins have been placed.
‘‘We recently spent more than $7000, hiring local workers to complete work on the cabin,’’ Mr Little said.
‘‘I came up a week before Christmas and low and behold, two units have boxed us in and we have no access to the park.
‘‘Indirectly, they told us they would be moving two cabins but they didn’t say the road would be closed off – the road leads to nowhere.
‘‘We’ve been coming here for 30 years and we always spend money in the town.’’
The Littles say they would be happy to pay the new fees which have caused other residents to protest publicly, if it were not for the new cabins.
‘‘We come to Deni about once a month.
The Littles were among the group of 40 residents to storm Deniliquin Council on Thursday and demand council intervene.
Mrs Little was reduced to tears when telling staff that McLean Beach Caravan Park is ‘‘like another home’’.
She later told the Pastoral Times that vocal protesters have been told, allegedly by management, their only option is to leave the park.
The park’s resident hosts Pam and Ken Sutton have previously told the Pastoral Times that protesting would do little to encourage the park’s owners to reduce the fees.
