The Andrews Government today received an independent report on the future management of Caulfield Racecourse Reserve.

“We want to maintain Caulfield Racecourse Reserve as one of Australia’s pre-eminent racing venues, as well as a community asset which can be enjoyed by local residents.” Minister for Energy Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio said.

“I’d like to thank the members of the working group, along with all stakeholders and community groups who have shared their thoughts on the future management of Caulfield Racecourse Reserve.”

 

Earlier this year, a bi-partisan working group was established to review the implementation of the 2014 Victorian Auditor-General’s Office report into the management and oversight of the Caulfield Racecourse Reserve.

The working group was also asked to provide independent advice on the future management of the Reserve.

“I’m now carefully considering the report and its recommendations, and I am confident that it will lead to a modern and transparent governance model for the Caulfield Racecourse Reserve.” Ms. D’Ambrosio said.

As part of its investigation, the working group met a range of stakeholders and community groups who share an active interest in the Reserve.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio will now consider the report’s findings and provide a response in the coming weeks.

Members of the bi-partisan working group include:

  • Independent Chair, Ken Ryan
  • Member for Oakleigh, Steve Dimopoulos
  • Member for Caulfield, David Southwick
