Planning decision on motocross events at Witham-on-the-Hill track deferred

Have your say

Councillors have deferred making a decision on proposals to host motocross events at a bike track.

A retrospective planning application by Clyde Thompson, who owns Enduro UK motocross track between Witham-on-the-Hill and Castle Bytham, to change the site so it can be used for biking was discussed by South Kesteven district councillors at a development control committee meeting on Tuesday.

Planning officers had recommended the plans be rejected because of concerns over noise.

But councillors wanted a further noise report to be carried out before making a final decision on the application.

It is Mr Thompson’s second application. A first application was refused in 2012.
