Community Engagement – Round 2: Open until 30 October

The concept plan for the proposed motorsport precinct has now been updated to incorporate community feedback from round one of consultation. Consultation on the revised concept plan is open until Friday 30 October.

Revised Concept Plan

As a result of community engagement, the following changes have been made to the concept plan:

  • Drag strip removed from the circuit and relocated along the frontage of the site. This change will remove the potential degradation (between drag strip and circuit) and cross contamination with the circuit and may allow for the potential expansion of the 1/8 mile drag strip into a ¼ mile drag strip to the land to the north;
  • Realignment of the Speedway Circuit to an oval shape (previously based on the Rockhampton Showground dimensions) to allow for longer straights and more passing opportunities;
  • Inclusion of a Burnout Pad;
  • Inclusion of a commercial area (for example service station);
  • Relocate the remote control car track adjacent to the welcome centre. A key aim is to provide all the tourist / day-to-day operations into the one area of the site (Go-Karts, remote control car track, driver training, welcome centre and commercial area);
  • Combine Motorcross and Supercross tracks together;
  • Adjust the twin mud racing track to allow for a run off and pit area;
  • Provide more centralised parking by relocating the BMX track to the southern boundary;
  • 4x4 trail combined with general off-road area for mud sports;
  • Remove all tracks and camping areas from the creek / biodiversity corridor;
  • Extend the camping area along the western boundary; and
  • Provide additional trees for shade along viewing banks, buffer to the residents to the north and west of the site and to improved visual amenity.

Community Engagement – Round 1

Council commenced the first round of community engagement in August (3 August – 24 August) for the proposed motor sports precinct. The feedback received from the community and stakeholders was important to understand issues and design consideration to inform the master planning process (concept plan and technical assessments).

During the consultation period, Council received a total of 526 submissions (including a petition containing 157 signatures). All submissions received have been reviewed and used to guide an updated concept plan as well being considered by the technical assessments (currently underway). The Community Engagement Report outlines all the matters raised by the community with a response on how Council can address or mitigate the issue/s raised.
