  1. Must be on a wind up. Thought the racing was very good on one of the better temporary tracks. Woffinden may as well pack it in. Not interested if anyone gets close Bewley the same, but his track craft is diabolical as well.

    Last day to OBJECT to the retrospective planning application at Rye House Stadium. Click on the link below https://publicaccess.eastherts.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=S9ZI48GLFP200&activeTab=summary Lots going on in the background to get the track reinstated but public support is needed. Will take a couple of minutes.

    Surprised no one's filled him in over the years with his behaviour

    It's a nonsense article where the reporter has just looked at the planning portal on EHDC website and made a story from it. Crap journalism. He's added parts from the retrospective planning application from the Rye House Group and added a couple of fan comments from the public comments to try and make it seem fair. RHAG have serious allegations against EHDC and Lee Valley Park Authrority which need to be answered. Rye House Group are still trying to bullsh1t their way through all the mess they have created by saying it's now unsafe. Anyone with eyes can still see the area where the track was is clear. The Environmental Agency have put in an objection to the unlawful building though which could make things interesting. Yep. Was more worried about the £ signs than the future of the club by all accounts

    https://publicaccess.eastherts.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=S9ZI48GLFP200&activeTab=summary The retrospective planning application for the big extension that was stuck on the spectator stand 4 years ago that breached building laws Any objections would be welcome. Just go to the comment section. Comments should focus on: East Herts District Council were informed 4 years ago of the breach by the Rye House Action Group Strong action should be taken against unlawful building work The applicant has destroyed a community asset(track and club) and broke planning laws. They shouldn't be helped or rewarded for such reprehensible behaviour Not a good look for EHDC if they don't enforce building laws The harder the council make it for Rye House Group the better the chances for Speedway being part of the future. If it wasn't for the RHAG the whole complex would have been a football pitch and clubhouse by now.

    They have put in for retrospective planning on the spectator stand that they turned into a gymnastics centre. They lied in 2020 and said the size of the building hadn't changed so didn't need to apply for planning permission. They stuck a huge extension on the end as a viewing area They are currently being investigated by East Herts District Council planning enforcement for this breach and others It sums up the state of planning in this country that you can put in for retrospective planning just when the investigation for the breach is coming to an end In the overall scheme of things, it doesn't mean a great deal. The area of the track is where it matters. How long can they keep a white elephant after paying out a tidy sum for the lease?

    Why?

    It should have happened a couple of years ago but at least the licence has been revoked. The further Russell and Osbourne are away from any possible involvement the better. The Abbey is dead in the water. Osbourne wouldn't let the speedway back out of spite now anyway At least it gives a chance for a consortium to get together and put pressure on the council to provide a plot of land after their awful handling of the planning process at the Abbey

    No, the lease has been held by the kart track for the whole complex since 2019.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-68169290 Article on BBC about the latest A nice picture of the kart track with a negative headline won't do any harm Usual nothing response from the LVPA and EHDC though, but at least they know the BBC are interested so pressure being put on

    Yes, I mentioned earlier in the thread about Osbourne & the smarmy Gareth Hooper. Both trashed the sport & said it wasn't viable at the inquiry. Irony anyone? Russell didn't look particularly healthy when I saw a picture of him a few months ago either using a walking stick. You have pretty irrefutable evidence of a stitch up but the BSPL won't do a thing. Same at Peterborough where Chapman has no intention of doing anything to save the club but gets to hold onto the licence.

    Chapman & Godfrey the pair of clowns in charge of the BSPL at that time have to take a large amount of responsibility. Comical to hear Godfrey say he'll do what he can to get Rye back! You played a huge part in the club shutting you clown. Think Rye are in a better position than Arena or Swindon. The LVPA own the land not the twats(Ricky Musk & Kevin O'Malley) who ripped the track out & broke planning laws. The LVPA will be the one who eventually will decide the future of Rye. I'm sure their not happy that a tenant has broken planning laws on their land. The lease also says speedway & greyhounds need to be included on the site I believe. They have written to the tenants demanding some answers according to the Rye House Action Group. The council have done what they can refusing planning permission & taking enforcement action. They can't force the tenant to run speedway. The BSPL should be all over the LVPA saying we have a promoter ready to go in ASAP. The infrastructure & planning permission are already in place. I have no faith in them though. It's a wait & see. I think the first half of the year will see whether there is any future for Rye.

    Why haven't the BSPL taken the licence off Russell yet? Any serious association would have had the licence off him as soon as he joined Osbourne in making that statement about speedway not being viable at the Abbey & joining Swindon Mototorsport.
