Reflections Holiday Parks (RHP) has hit back at suggestions that its legal dispute with Byron Council over the Terrace Reserve caravan park relates to an attempt to expand the park’s boundaries.

The state-owned corporation has taken the Council to the Land and Environment Court over the ‘deemed refusal’ of its new activity application to operate the park, located in Brunswick Heads.

Echonetdaily understands that the activity application was submitted by RHP last year.

It was previously reported in Echonetdaily that RHP may have been attempting to change the boundaries of the park as part of the application.

Standard licence

But last week, the corporation’s CEP Steve Edmonds strongly denied this.

‘The court action that Reflections has taken is simply about reissuing a standard licence to operate for Terrace Reserve,’ Mr Edmonds said.

‘It does not include any new activity, nor are there any expansion of boundaries – simply a licence to operate  the park as it has done for decades.’

In a statement to Echonetdaily, Byron Council said it would contend in the case that the application ‘should be refused because insufficient information has been provided to enable a proper assessment of the proposed activity’.

Echonetdaily has requested court documents to seek further information about the nature of the dispute.
