The future of the Entry Hill Golf Course site - proposed Mountain Bike park

After an open tender process ending early in 2021, BANES Council selected a Bristol-based business called Pedal Progression, as their preferred bidder to operate the Entry Hill Golf Course site as a Mountain Bike park. Here is a link to a concept plan for the proposed mountain bike park, which was commissioned by the Council as the basis for the bidding process.

We’ve been working to better understand the Mountain Bike project, asking questions and using Freedom of Information requests to fill in some of the gaps.  Click the button below to get to our  'questions and answers'.  This explains the information we’ve gathered through discussions with BANES, with Pedal Progression Ltd and with others.   We are trying to create a resource of factual information here, reporting what we know as clearly as possible. We add to these as we find out more, so please check back from time to time for the latest information. 

Our 'Red Lines' for any leisure development at the Entry Hill golf course site

The EHCA committee is open minded about the future of the site. We've always been willing to work with any operator who can deliver a leisure facility with a good, sustainable business plan that can provide value to the local community. To make clear what we expect, we  set out some ‘red lines’ we know the community would expect any project to meet and following feedback from Entry Hill residents we expanded these into a set of principles. We sent these to BANES Council who have agreed to take account of them in planning for the development of the site.
