Circuit launches appeal after the local council rejects its application for more practice days
DARLEY MOOR has launched an appeal after its application for further practice days was denied by the Derbyshire District council.
The original application was refused in January this year on the grounds of the noise from the circuit - which has hosted motorsports since the 1950s - has an affect on people living nearby.
Councillor Andrew Shirley met with villagers from the surrounding areas to discuss the proposals, he said: “The noise on both race days and training days is already very intrusive and disruptive to a large number of those resident in local villages, any increase in days will be very damaging to all within this part of Derbyshire.
“While Darley Moor provides leisure opportunities for spectators there is a limit of noisy activity that one can tolerate and this limit has already been exceeded for many.”
Darley Moor had applied for 34 practice and test days to go along with the 14 race days it is currently permitted.
