Noise fears set to block motocross track plans

A second bid to host motocross events at a bike track looks set to be thrown out.

Clyde Thompson, who owns Enduro UK motocross track between Witham-on-the-Hill and Castle Bytham, has applied for retrospective change of use planning permission so the site can legally be used for biking.

This is Mr Thompson’s second application after South Kesteven District Council refused his first in October 2012.

The council’s development control committee will consider the updated application on Tuesday.

But planning officers have recommended councillors reject the plans because of noise concerns, despite Mr Thompson addressing a potential problem with highway safety around the site.
