Racetrack for Valleys will 'transform' the area

The Circuit of Wales claim developers is worth around £300m and will annually be worth £50m to the Welsh economy, attract 750,000 visitors a year to the area and create 6,000 jobs.

Here are some of your views on the development being given the green light.

This is a fantastic opportunity to regenerate the much dilapidated area. Jobs, income, investments.... It will have it all. Good luck Circuit of Wales

– Matt Watkins

It would make plenty of jobs for people . But the wildlife should also be protected as well.

– Kay Davies

This will create jobs for local people and also be a landmark for Wales in the Motorsport world. I'd love to see Motorsport come alive in Wales and I totally back this race track.

– Benjamin Kerry Rees

I care about the wildlife as much as the next person..BUT the jobs and revenue this could bring to a very depressed part of south Wales outweighs it .
