Liverpool City Council - proposed development at Woodward Park

The ICAC investigated whether any person engaged in corrupt conduct in relation to a proposed development of a club and hotel facility for the Bulldogs Leagues Club at Woodward Park, Liverpool.

The investigation focused on two main issues:

  • whether any person solicited or offered to make a financial contribution to the Australian Labor Party in return for obtaining Government support for any aspect of the development, and
  • the involvement of Liverpool City Council staff in the development, and in particular whether any Council officer or other person acted corruptly in relation to that involvement.

In its report on this investigation, made public on 27 February 2003, the ICAC made no findings that any person engaged in corrupt conduct, and stated its opinion that consideration be given to the prosecution of one of the witnesses who gave evidence for an offence under section 87 of the ICAC Act of giving false or misleading evidence to the ICAC.
