New lease of life for Khancoban Boat Ramp

New lease of life for Khancoban Boat Ramp
‎Wednesday, ‎29 ‎October ‎2014

Snowy Hydro and the Tumbarumba Shire Council have been working together to give a new lease of life to the area around the Khancoban Boat Ramp.

A proposal that aims to increase the number of visitors and improve visitor experience around Khancoban moved one step closer recently when Snowy Hydro and Tumbarumba Shire Council signed off on a lease for the Khancoban boat ramp, picnic area and surrounds.

Snowy Hydro was approached by Tumbarumba Shire Council seeking support for a proposal that would see free camping provided on Council owned land adjacent to the boat ramp.  A few concerns about ensuring public safety, waste management and amenity had to be resolved, but now long term arrangements are being put in place that will meet the goals of both organisations, protect community interests and add to the appeal of Khancoban for visitors.

Free camping will be promoted and managed by Tumbarumba Shire Council within a designated area adjacent to the boat ramp consistent with the Councils policy for camping in other reserves. Permits will be issued for certain lengths of stay and conditions for campers will be clear and enforced by the Council and its rangers.

Improvements to the site will include relocation and upgrading of the toilet /amenities block, new tree planting and improved signage.

The new lease of life being given to the area around the Khancoban boat ramp by Tumbarumba Shire Council may well be an example of how the community can benefit while the pondage fulfils its primary purpose as part of the Snowy Scheme.
