Hansard: Caulfield Racecourse: public access

Title Caulfield Racecourse: public access
Activity Adjournment
Date 9 March 2010

Mr KAVANAGH (Western Victoria) -- My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Gavin Jennings, and relates to public access to the Caulfield racecourse. The minister recently promised to improve public access to the centre of the Caulfield Racecourse and to develop the centre as a public park -- that is, the land that is surrounded by the racing track.

I ask the minister to expeditiously, firstly, fulfil his promise to develop a park in the whole of the central area of the racecourse; secondly, act to improve access and infrastructure and opening times for that public space; thirdly, to publicly campaign to let the public know that the land is public land and accessible by them; and fourthly, to act to alter the fence along Queens Avenue so that the public can see the property that belongs to them in the hope that they will access it more frequently.
