Conservatives’ action over event

Following last year’s ‘Run to the Beat’ half-marathon, Cllr Geoff Brighty raised concerns about the chaos caused by road closures and a lack of information to residents. This has led to a commitment that better information will be provided in 2009, with a letter to residents with full road closure details, alternative routes, timings and pre-event and on the day contact details. Cllr Brighty has also attempted to reduce the noise from the music stages and tight limits have been imposed this year. Geoff says “The Run to The Beat half marathon is expected to raise a great deal of money for good causes. We hope this year will be an enjoyable event and we are working hard to minimise disruption for residents.”
