Wakefield Park Raceway have received information regarding the determination for our Development Application which was submitted late last year.
In the DA it included upgrades to infrastructure, ongoing uses of other venue offerings and ongoing use of the site for motorsport activities including implementation of a noise management and mitigation framework.
Wakefield Park have now received formal communication that an extraordinary meeting will be held in the Council Chambers on Tuesday, 22 June 2021 at 6pm. 184 – 194 Bourke Street, Goulburn to determine the DA.
Advice from the Planning Department to the councillors is to refuse the DA. Largely based on noise and social impacts issues. We strongly believe that our DA covers these issues fully and appropriately and are both surprised and disappointed that the planning department have determined to recommend that councillors refuse the DA. We strongly refute claims that the DA doesn’t address the issue of noise.
This meeting will provide a public forum for which councillors will hear from people who have nominated themselves to speak about Wakefield Park’s DA.
We encourage a show of support by Wakefield Park by either attending the meeting in person, signing the attached petition or even better, both.
Wakefield Park will continue to press on to ensure it is viable and continue to provide the significant economic and community benefits that we are long recognised for providing to the Goulburn community.
Having worked alongside Goulburn Mulwaree council since 2019 on this issue. We hope that we can have approval so we can continue to attract events and support our community.
We thank everyone for their support.
