Cheltenham Borough Council has granted planning permission to the £45 million redevelopment of Cheltenham Racecourse. Work is due to go ahead after next year's Cheltenham Festival in March.
I am delighted that Cheltenham Borough Council has approved the application and am most grateful for the very positive support received from the local community. The new development will enable us to provide facilities for our racegoers in keeping with the quality of the National Hunt Racing on offer at Cheltenham and ensure that Cheltenham Racecourse enhances its status as a world-class sports venue for many years to come.
