The City of Albany will close two campgrounds in June as it forges ahead with planned upgrades that were delayed by the COVID-19 crisis.

Cosy Corner and Torbay Inlet campgrounds are set for upgrades including road maintenance, new signage and revegetation.

The works were initially planned for May but were postponed due to the pandemic. They have been rescheduled to start on June 8.

City reserves manager Jacqui Freeman said Cosy Corner and Torbay Inlet were the City’s most popular campgrounds.

“With regional borders opening next week, the people who have been stuck in our region and using the campgrounds because they had nowhere else to stay will be able to move on, and that will allow us to get works under way,” she said.

“It’s a pretty cold time of the year to be camping so we think it’s an ideal time to get these campgrounds ready for residents and visitors to enjoy when the weather starts to warm up again.”

Cosy Corner will be closed from June 8 to 12 and the Torbay Inlet will be closed from June 15 to 19.
