Pride Park Cycle Track update!

"Pride Park cycle track legal challenge
09:36: BBC Radio Derby Derbyshire Wildlife Trust has started a legal challenge against a cycle track planned for a nature reserve in Derby. The city council granted planning permission for the circuit on Pride Park last week.

Pride Park Cycle Track
Ecologists say the sanctuary nature reserve is a unique place for rare birds in Derby - and building the track there will damage precious habitat.

The Derbyshire Wildlife trust says it's formally requested that the council stops work on the site immediately - and if it doesn't, it'll apply for a court injunction."

Oh dear looks like the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust have really taken offence with the council decision to go ahead with this cycle racing track. They (DWT) seem hell-bent on stopping people enjoying themselves for the sake of the birds, who would, I'm sure, nest elsewhere.
The Friend of Cromford Canal came up with similar problems with DWT with the proposed restoration of the Cromford canal...and this was on a canal which had been built 200 years ago!  Mad
