WANGARATTA could soon become a more motor-home and caravan friendly town.
Rural City of Wangaratta councillors on Tuesday endorsed Wareena Park as an appropriate site for a dump point, meaning installation will be scheduled before the end of the financial year.
The free dumping point will be the first of its kind in Wangaratta, with another located at the Oxley Recreation Reserve.
However, the site will not include free overnight camping.
Officers from council’s economic development unit had worked with its infrastructure team to evaluate sites after the use of the Wangaratta Saleyards was questioned at the June ordinary meeting.
Locations considered included Apex Park, Avian Park, Batchelor’s Green, Rotary Park, Wangaratta Livestock Centre, Wangaratta Showgrounds and Wareena Park.
