Addingham holds public meeting to discuss Tour de France
8:00am Friday 17th January 2014 in News
Rumours of a music festival at a country estate near Skipton over the busy Tour de France weekend this summer have been scotched.
A meeting in the village brought together Bradford Council emergency planning officers and others involved in the visit of the Grand Depart of the Tour de France, with about 160 residents.
Residents raised concerns about road closures and other inconvenience expected to be caused by the race, which will visit Addingham twice – on July 5 and 6.
Villagers were also worried about claims of a pop festival taking place at Bolton Abbey over the weekend.
They feared that the festival could bring massive road congestion and disruption.
