The Paradise Point Neighbourhood Safer Place has been decommissioned. The nearest designated Neighbourhood Safer Place is the Jamieson Memorial Hall on Perkins Street.

Neighbourhood Safer Places are also known as Bushfire Places of Last Resort. They provide some protection when all other bushfire plans have failed.

Paradise Point Caravan Park was first designated as a Neighbourhood Safer Place more than ten years ago. Every year, Council identifies and assesses Neighbourhood Safer Places to ensure people have a place of last resort to go to during bushfire.

Some places Council identifies as being able to protect from bushfire and radiant heat are owned privately. In these cases, Council works with the owner to ensure the property meets the strict criteria of a Neighbourhood Safer Place. Paradise Point Caravan Park’s facilities have changed and the owners have changed their personal circumstance, so the site has been decommissioned.

Mayor Cr James Tehan thanked the Paradise Point Caravan Park for its service to the community.

“We are grateful to Paradise Point Caravan Park for the years they have been willing to host the Neighbourhood Safer Place. This is a great community service that is vital to the safety of a community.

“We rely on these private organisations who choose to make their properties available as a Neighbourhood Safer place and support our community through this service.”

Every month during summer, Council audits each Neighbourhood Safer Place to ensure it is safe, accessible and suitable to host community members as a last resort.

There are now 11 Neighbourhood Safer Places across Mansfield Shire.
