The Actuary All Weather Horse Racing Tips reports great news for Great Leighs

There was great excitement in the The Actuary All Weather Horse Racing Tips camp when the news broke that a new course would be adding to the All Weather calendar. Complementing courses at Kempton Park, Lingfield Park, Southwell and Wolverhampton a new track would join the racing calendar at Great Leighs.

With the first fixture taking place on April 20th 2008 the excitement was short lived as by 16th January 2009 the course went in to administration. New owners stepped in and had hope to be part of the 2013 season fixtures list but this was reject by the BHA.

The good news for All Weather officianados is that on 4th March 2013 Chelmsford City Council granted planning permission for a permanent 30,000 sq ft Hospitality Complex to be built at the Great Leighs course.

The building is designed as an entertainment venue that meets the needs of the race-going public with a total capacity of 3,500. The building will predominantly be single storey with a two storey section in the middle and constructed mainly of steel and glass in order to offer 360 degree viewing. A roof uplift offers an additional 360 degree viewing platform during race days and unique hospitality and dining experience for non race days when other equine related events will be taking place. The building will sit on the inside of the track, and is low in height so as not to block viewing once the phase 2 grandstand is constructed and in use

Keith Brown, Chairman of Great Leighs, said “We are pleased to be granted planning permission as this fulfils an important condition in relation to our BHA licence application.”
