Derby velodrome proposals may be rejected by HSE

Plans for a new velodrome to be built in Derby could be rejected by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The group has cited gas storage facilities near the planned site as potential hazards, but maintains that the danger may be handled during the planning process, according to the BBC.

HSE noted that, if the plans are consented, they should be referred to the Office for Nuclear Regulation, while the Environment Agency has also raised concerns over the site's safety.

Andre Pitts from the agency wrote a letter to Derby City Council, stating: "The risk to life and vehicles within the car park from fluvial inundation would be unacceptable if the development were to be allowed."

The HSE recently warned that it will not hesitate to prosecute companies that perform poorly with regard to health and safety.

Such a warning could prompt firms to evaluate their warning signs and safety measures.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801286974-ADNFCR
