The proposed facility will see the creation of the first Olympic standard BMX track in Scotland consisting of 8m and 5m start ramps to accommodate all levels of riders. It is the only new venue being built ahead of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships and will complete the city’s portfolio of cycle sport venues as well as increasing the profile of cycling across the country. It’s construction means that young people will be able to learn all four cycling disciplines across the city –  mountain biking at Cathkin Braes, road and track at the Velodrome and BMX at Knightswood Park.

To find out more about the proposed development please come along to the event and speak to representastives from Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life and Glasgow 2018 European Championships. Alternatively please contact Julia Lapthorn, the Programme Officer, on knightswoodbmx@glasgow.gov.uk or 0141 287 0993. You can download the poster here knightswoodbmx_centre_consultation_feb17

Please note that this is a Pre-planning Application Consultation and does not affect your statutory rights under the Planning process. When a Planning Application is submitted to Glasgow City Council, normal neighbour notification and publicity will be undertaken at that time and you will have the opportunity to make formal representations regarding the proposals at that time.
