What on earth is Swanage Town Council doing trying to make money out of a caravan park? Do they not remember that they could not even successfully run the ice cream kiosks on the beach (closed for lunch and at Bank Holidays)? The visitor centre losses (also closed for lunch)? The Station Yard fiasco? Having to charge for toilets? Extortionate car parking fees- where does all that money go?If caravan parks are so good, why all the licensing and planning restrictions on the existing ones?The STC caravan park will not be the success it could be in private hands, and may well turn out to be at best a poor investment but probably a liability to the people of Swanage. This piece of family silver should be sold off immediately.
