Donny Planning Decision By New Year
Planners on the local district council surrounding Donington Park have announced they’re confident a complete decision whether plans for the circuit will be allowed will be made by the New Year.
Donington Park has been given the F1 race in Britain from 2010 onwards, and as such needs to make big developments to bring it up to the acceptable standard.
Plans have been drawn up, but they just needed to be allowed by the council.
John Bridges, a cabinet member of North West Leicestershire District Council, told the Press Association: “The prospect of Formula One at Donington Park is something really exciting for the district as a whole. We will though be making sure that the environmental impact of proposed development at the site is properly considered.
“Ever since the announcement of Donington Park as hosts for the British Grand Prix from 2010 we have been working closely with the track owners and their planning consultants to make sure we receive the information needed for the planning application as early as possible.
“I am confident that if we continue working together we will still be able to make a planning decision on the proposals by the end of the year.”
