A brand new, state-of-the-art cycling hub - complete with its very own BMX track - has moved one step closer to being built in Cornwall.
The specialist centre - inspired by the legacy of the Tour of Britain - will be built on council-owned land near Newquay.
Cornwall Council said it hopes the £7million facility would provide a “cycling destination” for residents and visitors to the region.
The plans, which have been backed by councillors, were submitted in partnership with British Cycling and Sport England.
Steve Double, MP for St Austell and Newquay, said: “The Cycle Hub is for everyone and encourages us all to be more active.
Cornwall Council said the hub will only take up around 12% of the site at Aerohub Business Park, leaving wild areas for biodiversity and habitats.
The proposals include significant amounts of tree planting, wildflower areas and managed grasslands which will create a space for visitors to relax and enjoy and opportunities for volunteering to manage them.
