mCm Petition to Save Castle Combe sign now




North Wiltshire District Council have served a Noise Nuisance Order on Castle Combe Circuit. The circuit Directors consider this to be unfair and restrictive. We are appealing against the Order. However, within the Council it is possible that at a debate the Council members could instruct their officers to withdraw this Noise Nuisance Order. We hope to achieve this action rather than indulge in costly legal actions for both parties. For Castle Combe Circuit this is money that could be spent on improving our visitor facilities. However for Council Tax payers, the vast majority who are not affected by this action, the cost is a further burden on Council budgets that could be used to improve our health and education systems, our roads and other services. This action has been brought about by a tiny number of local residents. Because of their action, Council Tax payers throughout Wiltshire will have an additional financial burden to carry during 2005.


Whilst the Order covers all race days, the principle clause will prevent us, after 2005, running the British formula 3 and GT Championships.

During four successful years, these two races have Ш run on average for 5 hours 22 minutes per year, just 4.36\% of our total racing time.

Ш the races have attracted almost 100,000 visitors.

Ш using the Councils own calculations, these races have generated approximately 10m into the North Wiltshire economy.

Ш they have provided Wiltshire with a world class sporting event.

We are a race circuit. We accept racing cars do make noise and have therefore been instrumental in changing the regulations to lower the noise limit for F3 & GTs by 4Dba. That is a significant reduction.

The circuit has been here since 1950 and run racing continuously through that time. It is well known and well signposted. Anyone moving into the area. since 1950, would have been aware of its existence. We have the lowest usage of any circuit in the United Kingdom currently attracting national racing classes.

Long term effects of losing these races could force us to look for other revenue streams and to restrict our support of some loss making and charitable events.

We believe we have demonstrated to the council that with careful noise controls and an undertaking to work with the organisers of these championships to investigate further noise reductions that we can work in harmony with the majority of the local environment and residents.

Your help is needed.

    This is a fine example of a few narrow minded idiots spoiling over 50 years of other peoples enjoyment, with themselves only having any interest in the matter for less than 50 weeks. Hardly a qualification for entitlement to any sort of opinion. Motorcycl
