TasRacing has met with Latrobe residents from the Palmers Road area for its proposed $15 million relocation of greyhound and harness racing from the Devonport Showgrounds, which have been sold to a developer.

Plans for the proposed Latrobe complex were announced recently, with some Latrobe residents claiming they hadn't been consulted.

TasRacing CEO Paul Erikkson says he understands their concerns and he's confident after meeting residents their issues can be resolved.

 

Mr Erikkson says issues included noise, lighting, water drainage, and traffic implications.

 

"We're happy to take all their concerns on board and work wth local residents and modify the design or incorporate them into the design to mitigate the issues," Mr Erikkson says.
