GRV releases infrastructure discussion paper

Must read

Greyhound Racing Victoria has today published a discussion paper seeking industry feedback, aimed to drive informed decision making on the sport’s future infrastructure requirements.

The Victorian Greyhound Racing Assets & Infrastructure Discussion Paper explores the current footprint of racetracks and training facilities in the state, and what the future needs of the sport might be beyond the next decade.

The Victorian Greyhound Racing Industry conducts approximately 15,000 races annually at around 1250 race meetings conducted across 13 registered clubs and racetracks throughout Victoria (excluding coursing tracks and events).

Given circumstances may change in the future, flexibility will always be required to ensure the delivery of the best outcomes for the Victorian greyhound racing industry.

This paper has been prepared for consultation purposes and GRV will consider all feedback received from stakeholders, before completing a final 10-year Victorian Greyhound Racing Industry Infrastructure Plan.

The scope of this discussion paper includes racing and training requirements at registered Victorian greyhound racing clubs and does not include coursing tracks or private properties. Continuously improving safety and welfare for competing greyhounds, club and GRV staff and industry participants, to the extent practicable, are key factors to be considered in the development of the plan.
