Lockyer Valley Equine Precinct Business Case
The Lockyer Valley Racing and Equine Collaborative (the Collaborative) has been established to plan, develop and execute the redevelopment of the Lockyer Valley Turf Club, a 53.7 ha freehold land site located at Spencer Street, Gatton, into a multi-use, world class precinct for the equine industry in South East Queensland.
The precinct is named the Lockyer Valley Equine Precinct (LVEP). Its long-term strategic objective is to facilitate the growth of the equine industry while considering the ‘lifecycle’ journey of a horse, from thoroughbred racing to equestrian to more sedate activities off the track where there is a growing awareness for the need to rehabilitate and facilitate safe transition of horses into their later years.
