THE Save Coventry Speedway and Stox Campaign Group invite all motorsport fans and local residents to a public meeting on Tuesday November 6.
In October 2017, we held a very well-attended meeting at the Brandon Club and one year on we feel this is the right time to provide a full update on the current position.
The meeting will be staged in the Woodlands Suite of the Mercure Brandon Hall Hotel on Tuesday November 6, starting at 7.30pm. Members of the media are also welcome to attend.
Whilst a decision on the future of Brandon Stadium has still not been made, much has happened in the last twelve months. The meeting will take the form of a presentation, followed by questions / discussion, focussing on the following:
1) Recap on the events discussed at the first public meeting; 2) Describe what has happened between October 2017 and November 2018, including the Local Plan process, the Planning Application, the Neighbourhood Plan and the events / damage to the stadium; 3) Highlight some of the outcomes resulting from the work of the Campaign Group; 4) Look at possible future scenarios.
Since its formation, the Campaign Group focus has always been forward-looking, and the meeting will therefore NOT discuss the events leading to the closure of the stadium or discuss who is to blame, as it will not help in any way.
We are very pleased to say that Mark Pawsey (Member of Parliament for Rugby) and Michael Stokes (Leader of Rugby Council) have both confirmed they will attend the meeting.
Admission to the meeting is free, and we would like to place on record our thanks to the Mercure Brandon Hall Hotel for being so willing to accommodate us.
