Since the closure of Reading's Smallmead Stadium(greyhound racing and speedway)in October 2008, there have been plans to replace it and bring greyhound racing back to Reading.
Though it seems it has been an on-going topic, since Smallmead closure, Reading Borough Council are 'keen' to bring racing back to Reading and 'plans are well advanced for a new site', please read this article.
Please write a polite email to Reading Bourough Council at the on-line planning contact form.
Please explain your concerns that the Council is 'Keen' to have a return of greyhound racing, an inherently abussive industry, back to the town they represent.
Please highlight how the industry is sustained on the abuse and killing of tens of thousands of the greyhounds bred each year, how the Greyhound Board of Great Britain sanction the killing of healthy young greyhounds as an option for owners under rule 18 of the GBGB Racing Rules.
