After lodging our initial request to Heritage Victoria for heritage  registration on 16/12/2021, then seeing the old trees being felled on 18/1/22, the decision by the Heritage Council of Victoria was announced late February 2023.

We’ve now had a chance to read over and consider the 45 pages – a pleasing result in some respects, disappointing in others. The big win is that all the Crown Land for Caulfield Racecourse is now on the Victorian Heritage Register.  Apart from the Permit Exemptions decided upon by the Council and various Heritage Permits already granted, changes to that part of the Racecourse now require Heritage Permits from Heritage Victoria.  (Note – the Freehold land including the Community and Booran Lodge Stables is largely not included in this.)
