Throughout September Essex County Council (ECC) and its partners, The Salvation Army, Castle Point Borough Council and The London 2012 Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), invited the residents of Hadleigh to have their say on the future of the Olympic Mountain Bike course at Hadleigh Farm.
Essex County Council is leading development of legacy plans for the venue and wants to take into account the views of the local community. This consultation will help define the proposals that will be brought forward next year. Public events have been held and will continue to operate to explore local peoples’ priorities in more detail. Essex County Council will use this input to develop outline plans which will be shared with the community during 2012. View the table of Consultation events below for more information.

The first survey stage of the consultation has demonstrated that the local community are keen to retain the mountain bike course after the 2012 Games, with an overwhelming 9 out of 10 respondents believing cycling is an important element of the future plans. At the heart of the feedback from the survey was also the importance of the area as a valued green space for a range of different uses and interests. This is something Essex County Council and its partners are committed to reflect in the development of plans. View survey results here>>
