As Liberal Democrats, we have pledged to be greener, fairer and more caring in the way we serve Mole Valley communities. This Lib Dem Council administration cares about community and understands the importance of listening when local residents express genuine concerns about issues that are important to them. During the course of the last few weeks, for example, there has been much discussion over the future of the Dorking BMX Track, with new and varying concerns coming to light from local people and users of the track. Consequently, we have decided to withdraw the current BMX report and recommendations from consideration by the Cabinet at its meeting on 22nd June. This will allow more time to explore all the views and discuss a future course of action on what is clearly an important issue to members of our community.
Initial consideration of views from local people, from different interest groups and from the results of the consultation appear to indicate three possible options for the future of the site:
One of the concerns expressed by members of the public was the need for an ecological survey. With our commitment to the environment and biodiversity, the Liberal Democrats of the Council support investigatory and information gathering work; this will be set in place as soon as practicable and a final recommendation submitted for further scrutiny.
We would like to thank all of those concerned members of the public who have taken the time to contact the Council to express their views. We have listened, we are acting fairly, we care about finding a solution that preserves the facility, is environmentally friendly and is welcomed by the community.
