City Welcomes New Regional Racing Facility Recommendation

9/09/2015

City of Rockingham Mayor, Barry Sammels has welcomed the findings of a GHD report into the reconfiguration of Perth’s racing facilities, which found in favour of a decentralised approach featuring the relocation of Perth’s racing hub at Belmont to the Lark Hill Sporting Complex in Secret Harbour:

 “The proposition of a racing hub in our region has been raised a few years ago and the City is pleased that an independent report has found the Lark Hill site to be a suitable location for WA racing.
 
“The potential for a $40 million redevelopment of the Lark Hill site for racing would be a great fit for the Rockingham area as we prepare the region for continued high population growth into the future.
 
“Projects such as this will offer economic development opportunities and diverse local jobs in our area and the City is looking forward to working with Racing and Wagering WA and Perth’s racing fraternity to investigate this exciting opportunity.”
