September 2023 - Grandstand Precinct Redevelopment Update

The Moonee Valley Racecourse is going through a period of transformation to become a world-class, sustainable precinct that will see the legacy of this historic and much-loved precinct continue well into the future.

To help us achieve this vision, a master plan was prepared to guide the redevelopment of the racing precinct. The master plan was developed in collaboration with a range of stakeholders and was approved by Moonee Valley City Council in October 2021.

To date, the approved master plan has guided permit approvals for the realignment of the racetrack, construction of new racing infrastructure, infield car parking and ride share super stop, lighting, and a maintenance facility for the new racecourse. The Grandstand Precinct is the next phase to bring the approved master plan to life. A planning application has been lodged with Moonee Valley City Council.

As the planning application is consistent with the approved master plan, and planning controls in place, the planning process does not require public notice and review. However, the MVRC understands the delivery of the new Grandstand Precinct is important to the community, so we are keen to share an update on how this exciting new precinct will come to life, and have provided some FAQs.
