Application details


Nelson Speedway Association Incorporated


123 Lansdowne Road, Richmond

Legally described as  Lot 1 and part Lot 2, DP 10914, Records of Title NL 6C/1260 and NL 8C/40.


The proposal is for a recreation activity in the Rural 1 zone, described as the continuation of speedway activity, exceeding the noise levels in the Tasman Resource Management Plan and with the frequency of race meetings varied from the existing deemed resource consent.

The frequency proposed includes two occasions of consecutive two-day race events, and each two-day event counted as a single event within a cap of 15 race meetings in the annual 1 October to 30 April season. 

Racing would finish by 10pm. Race meetings would be separated by a minimum of five days, except for two-day events. Any two-day event would have a fourteen day period before and after when no race meetings would occur.

The application also seeks flexibility in the timing and calendar for contingencies:

  • Extension of racing time by one hour under certain circumstances.
  • Postponement of racing to the following day for NZ Speedway title events impacted by bad weather.

Associated activities proposed include one firework display per season.
