Judicial review of Lydden Hill circuit decision to be heard in 2022
A judicial review of Dover District Council’s decision to approve the expansion of Lydden Hill racing circuit is due to be heard on 15 February 2022.
It was in January 2020 that councillors backed proposals to pull down the circuit’s two-storey administration building and replace it with a two- to three-floor pavilion including office space, external viewing areas, function areas and six garages. Permission for a new access road from Geddinge Lane and extra land for parking was also sought.
Wootton Environment Protection Group has since raised funds for the judicial review of the council’s decision and this has been brought by nearby resident Penelope James.
Dover CPRE had objected to the scheme when it was first mooted in 2015 and maintained its opposition throughout.
