Reports suggest that plans for a cycle track which would wreck the Sanctuary Local Nature Reserve have been abandoned by Derby City Council. Delays to the scheme – due to the brave and, it seems, effective – legal challenge by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust mean that the cost effectiveness of the plans is now in doubt. Clearly wasn’t ever going to be a winner then!
This seems like very good news (almost as good as Lord Windermere winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup) but until the ‘official result’ is oin I wouldn’t spend the winnings. As with the Gold Cup, there might be a stewards’ enquiry.
