The existing lease of the Numurkah Caravan Park commenced on 1 April 2002 for a term of 21 years and expired on 23 April 2023. The tenant is currently operating on a month to month agreement while lease negotiations are finalised. In accordance with the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action’s (DEECA) leasing guidelines, lessees have the ability to seek a new lease prior to the expiry date.

Council received a proposal for a new lease from the current lessees in April 2019.  The proposal was assessed by an internal working group and negotiations on a number of lease matters including the proposed capital works plan and the responsibility for asset maintenance and renewal occurred. Following a Council meeting on 27 July 2022 Council agreed to test the market through an open Expression of Interest (EOI) process. Two applications were received and assessed by an internal panel with the current tenant being the preferred applicant.
