Moonee Valley Racecourse Redevelopment Facilitation

Project name: Moonee Valley Racecourse Redevelopment Facilitation

Location:  Moonee Valley Racecourse, Moonee Ponds (VIC)

Client:  Moonee Valley City Council

Brief:  MacroPlan was engaged by Moonee Valley City Council to facilitate council information session on the redevelopment of the Moonee Valley Racecourse.  The key requirements of this project involved managing the entire facilitation process and ensuring the sessions remained on track.  The redevelopment has been a contentious issue in the community therefore keeping attendees calm and focused was a priority.  MacroPlan Dimasi also facilitated a constructive questions and answer session for all in attendance.

Result:  MacroPlan delivered four effective sessions that enabled council to review concerns and questions of the community.  The council then ensured that they considered all points raised in any decision making regarding the racecourse.

The success of this approach was then repeated when MacroPlan were invited to facilitate similar sessions for council on the Essendon Airport and the East West Tunnel.

Services:  Facilitation and development advice.
