West Melbury businessman David Fear wants to create an electric bike racing circuit at Littledown. But Wiltshire Council planners have turned down his application.
It follows several complaints from residents and objections from Semley and Sedgehill, and Donhead St Mary Parish Councils. Listen to our report to hear some of their reasons for objection.
David says he is surprised at the opposition because he felt he had addressed concerns during his open day in the spring, when he demonstrated how quiet the bikes are. He tells Alfred, “We didn’t enter into this race intending to get beaten.” He explains what he is going to do next.
