I received the information below asking for my views and I contacted residents to ask for their views. I have collated the comments received and passed them on .

“We have received an application form from Iconic Cycling Events who are hoping to run a cycling sportif event which will predominantly take place on the highway and at The Brownlee Centre. 

They would also like to use Bedquilts recreation ground as an event village prior to the start of the event and as a carpark for the competitors on 16th June between 06:00hrs – 20:00hrs.  

They are expecting approx 50-75 cars which would remain in situ until the races have finished and the competitors have made their way back to their cars after the event closes at 18:00hrs.”
