THE PETITION
Recent changes to Victorian planning controls now prohibit a "Motor Racing Track" state-wide in new rural zones. The definition of a Motor Racing Track in the planning documents is as follows-

"Land used to race, rally, scramble, or test, vehicles, including go-karts, motor boats, and motorcycles, and includes other competitive motor sports."

This new law prevents any legally conducted events including rally, enduro, mototrials, grasstrack, tractor pulls, water ski and even private recreational vehicle use. In addition the prohibition extends to events not requiring any formed or constructed race track or infrastructure. It also includes one off competitions or training/practice days unless the land is re-zoned.

While Government representatives agree it was not the intention of the changes they are not willing to fix the problem!

DESIRED OUTCOME

The re-defining of "Motor Racing Track" in all Victorian planning schemes to so it only applies to major new developments requiring the construction of a Motor Racing Track with permanent faclities.

WHO WE NEED TO INFLUENCE

Victorian State Planning Minister, Hon. R Hulls,
www.dse.vic.gov.au

HOW LONG WILL WE CAMPAIGN

Until the Victorian State Government changes the planning laws.
