The project team will now commence work on the detailed planning application.

Err.....

....not really jack,,its currently 28 degrees and not a cloud in the sky? Learn not to believe everything you hear, Wales especially the south can be really hot.........on the other hand over the last 7 years its been the same as the rest of the UK....pissing down but this year were good to go.

Well done Blaenau Gwent Council for going with the plans, as for the objectors (we will damage wildlife and open spaces will be lost) for F88k sake, if Wales has one thing..it has plenty of open spaces and wildlife, why do you think they train the elite forces of the British army down this way......you F88king numpties.

Also like to say well done to all invovled in getting the planning sorted....looking forward to a world class race circuit.

Ridiculous

What a bloody f@@kin joke! The south already have a MotoGP/ F1 track!... They should have put it in the North of Wales, They'll probably charge a fortune too like Silverstone, Th last UK MotoGP race I went To was Donnington and it cost about £30

Be careful.....

how you go.......They (Some of them) don't like "Biker Types"..... Or "the English".... and watch out for Tractors spreading Mud on the roads...... oh and Sheep.... and if they start talking in Welsh.......then they really don't like you. This is just an opinion based on a few first hand experiences over the years.....not that it stops me from visiting....cus...I love the place.

Fantastic news

This should be the track and facility British motorsport deserves given its global standing. Let's hope the CoW team can turn this superb dream into a reality.

Wales is motorcycling heaven too. A couple of days either side of the GP exploring the country would be well worth the effort.

Well said Snev

The only good things about Wales are the women and the fact we have a Prince Of Wales who is English. Well not strictly true, he's of German decent. In fact,  I haven't forgiven the Welsh for killing our English King and putting the liar and cheating grandson of a Welsh footsoldier on the throne of England. Owen Tudor has a lot to answer for and his grandson Henry Tudor should have been destroyed at Bosworth and his head stuck on a pole at The Tower Of London.

Anyway, in the name of 21st century, neighbourly, cross border bonding I wish Wales good luck I suppose. :dopeyhmmmm:

This is good news

For Wales and as a whole the economy in the area. My only niggle is the transport links, they need to be world class, good road and rail links, these costs are not in the £300,000,000 proposed budget, that would be a separate cost to local and federal government which could put a mockers on it. New hospitals and schools or a rail link and motorway extension to a venue used 4-6 times a year buy large crowds. We have circuits already, why build a massive airport in the thames estuary when you can improve Heathrow kind of argument. Good luck to all involved and I hope that in 10 years I am standing in the grandstand cheering my nephew on his 5th world title.
