Sydney’s Hawkesbury region played host to the 11th World Polo Championship in Richmond 21 – 29 October 2017.
The event included polo matches, live entertainment, crowd participation activities and livestock education and was broadcast around the world.
The World Polo Championship was deemed a Major Event because:
The Department worked closely with organisers, the Environment Protection Authority, Roads and Maritime Services, police and other agencies, and Hawkesbury City Council to ensure all potential issues were considered and would be appropriately managed during the event.
A management plan ensured the smooth running of the event, including traffic management and access to the site, noise management, and waste management. The polo event was run according to the rules of the management plan.
The Department’s compliance team visited the site during the event to ensure the event was carried out in accordance with the plan.
