Conservation activists slam proposed development on the Kenilworth Racecourse

Activists are slamming the proposed development of a hotel, high-rise residential units and retail developments on the Kenilworth Racecourse Property.

The activists fear the impact on conservation in close-by areas.

Brett Herron, Mayco member for Transport and Urban Development says they haven't yet done an investigation of the report brought to their attention.

The City Council has, however, served notices to applications that require public comment, on surrounding property owners and organisations registered as interested and affected parties in the area, he says.

We did include the Kenilworth Residents Association.

Herron adds that it is not possible for the City to be aware of every organisation that exists in the area. He says it is also up to organisations to register and strongly believes the City has followed adequate processes in their planning.
