Permanent Success For Sporting Club

Today the East Staffordshire planning committee passed the application by the Burton Sporting Motorcycle club for a permanent off-road training facility at Kingstanding near Tatenhill airfield.

The club has been campaigning for a new site following the council’s decision to remove their training activities from Shobnall leisure centre at the end of last year.

The club is delighted with this decision that will allow them to continue to offer safe training opportunities to children from the age of 6 years old on off-road machines.

The club’s chairman Mr Martin Flinders said ” today’s decision has sent a positive message to all young motorcyclists that the East Staffordshire authority is interested in promoting your sport whether your interest is moto-x, grasstrack, speedway, flattrack, or trials. We welcome this decision, which went against the planning departments advice and scored a victory for common sense. My belief in the local democratic process has been restored.”

The B&DSMCC is an ACU affiliated club.

It is run as a voluntary, self-financing club that offers safe training in a controlled environment to all ages from 6-70 years old.
