Caulfield Racecourse Reserve
Following petition presented to house:
To the Legislative Council of Victoria:
The petition of residents of Victoria draws to the attention of the house the potential conflict of interest of Caulfield Racecourse Reserve trustees in their commercial relationships with the Melbourne Racing Club.
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council of Victoria take action to instigate a public inquiry into past commercial transactions between the trustees and Melbourne Racing Club, and call on the minister for environment and the Minister for Racing to end further alienation of this public land, ensure management by the trustees is transparent and accountable, and enforce the three uses of the reserve defined by the Crown grant.

Laid on table.
Ordered to be considered next day on motion of Ms PENNICUIK (SouthernMetropolitan).

PS: we have received the following notice from a resident. Once again local amenity will be disturbed by the MRC money making ventures. We wonder:

  • has a permit been granted for this new event?
  • has a lease been signed as yet?
  • what guarantee do residents have that the sound will be within EPA limits? Who will supervise and ensure that the legal requirements are met?
