View Full Version : Save Croft Circuit petition

I know the government will probably just dismiss this like all the others but a lot of signatures might keep the press interested, also this is a situation that not only affects Croft but the high court ruling may affect every circuit in the UK so hopefully all UK residents will put their name to this.

I put my X in the box. Everyone on here should do it too. It may do no good at all .. but then again it just might.

And the official response..
The Government recognises that motor sports are enjoyed by a great number of people across the country and does not seek to curtail that enjoyment if a site operator operates within the planning conditions.
As i understand it, Croft were operating within an agreed framework.
However, if the Local Authority finds that a nuisance interferes with a person’s reasonable use of their property or is prejudicial to their health the operator can be told under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 1990 to abate a reported nuisance.
Under section 79(1)(g) of the EPA 1990, local authorities have a duty to take reasonably practicable steps to investigate complaints of ‘noise emitted from premises so as to be prejudicial to health or a nuisance’. If satisfied that a statutory nuisance exists or is about to occur or recur, the local authority must serve an abatement notice under section 80 requiring that the nuisance is abated or restricted to prevent its occurrence or recurrence."
The local authority did not bring the case to court. It was a private action borne entirely out of spite which sought only to put money in the pockets of those involved.
I hate to say it, but i knew from day 1 the petition would be ignored. No positive action has ever been taken in response to a No 10 petition.
