Have Your Say - Draft Racing Recommendations Released

Have Your Say - Draft Racing Recommendations Released


Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) has released a discussion paper as part of its ongoing work to develop strategies and other racing related solutions to minimise the impact of the falling greyhound population that will develop in NSW (and Australia wide) over the next 12 to 24 months.

The discussion paper has been drafted based on a two month consultation period GRNSW undertook in September and October which included an online survey as well as face-to-face meetings with stakeholders across NSW. 

Crucially, the discussion paper makes 21 draft recommendations based on the feedback received during this consultation period. The draft recommendations cover potential changes to programming, incentives and grading with their immediate aim to address the issues created by the falling greyhound population and maximise racing opportunities over the next two years.

Participants are encouraged to read the discussion paper and review the draft recommendations and then provide feedback on each recommendation.

Feedback, in which participants are asked whether they support each draft recommendation, is able to be lodged by clicking here.

Feedback on the draft recommendations will close at 5pm Thursday 23 November 2017

Once all feedback has been received, the recommendations will be finalised and then submitted to the GRNSW Board for approval. 

GRNSW would like to thank all the participants who have contributed and provided their views on this important piece of work so far. All the feedback was vitally important in forming the basis for the recommendations and will go a long way in ensuring the NSW greyhound racing industry can maximise the racing population to give the industry the best chance of being able to sustain current racing levels.
