Positive new for Great Leigh's racecourse

The white elephant that is Great Leigh's racecourse in Essex in between Chelmsford and Braintree and most importantly only a hour's drive from Newmarket may finally reopen its doors in April. Horse Racing cannot take place until 2014 at the earlist but Dressage and Equestrian events could well be taking place there very soon.
The last race meeting took place in 2009 but the track is still in perfect working order and with flood lights installed ready for evening racing to take place with the only problem left is laying within some members of the local community and the leader of the local Green Party group who object to the brightness of the floodlights but this is not a problem at Kempton and Wolverhampton the other two racecourses in the UK that successfully stage floodlit evening meetings so hopefully if the track finally gets up and running then they will see the benefit of having a racecourse on the doorsteps which will create many jobs and bring many new visitors into the area to boost the local ecomony.
