Throughout the past few months the City of Powell River has received a number of concerns expressed about changes to the Willingdon Beach Campgrounds Bylaw #2413. As a result of these concerns changes to the Bylaw #2413 will be considered by Council at their November 5th Council meeting.
These changes include the following:
· Starting with 2017 bookings, bookings will be allowed up to one year in advance of the date being booked.
· Increasing beach site allowable bookings from 7 days to 14 days in 2016.
· That the $5.00 reservation fee charge introduced in the 2015 bylaw will be deleted.
· Section 6.2 dealing with the amount of people allowed on each site will be slightly changed allowing large families to be able to stay on the same site. This will be immediate families only.
Because Council are considering these changes on November 5th no bookings will be accepted until November 9th and with Council’s approval these changes will be implemented immediately.
Reservations shall be made starting November 9th. During the period from November 9th to November 23rd Reservations will only be accepted by phone only during call centre hours from 10:00am-6:00pm seven days per week. Starting November 24th Reservations for the following year will be accepted via call centre, email and in-person.
