    people doing the complaining.

    It's all part of the authorities banning us from deriving any sort of
    pleasure from the use of motorised vehicles. DEFRA are well on their
    way to out-lawing MX, Enduros, LDTs, hill rallies & green-laning. The
    effective ban on speedboats on Windemere will no doubt be hailed a huge
    success & adopted elsewhere. Road racing circuits are the next obvious
    target, especially if they can enlist the help of a few locals to
    justify their actions.

    It's explained quite well on their website or click on this for a direct link to
    the story:

    "Whilst the Order covers all race days, the principle clause will prevent
    us, after 2005, running the British formula 3 and GT Championships"

    Yep. I live just down the road from a track (Aton eyre in Shropshire)
    that until last year was used for the Masters motocross series.

    It got refused permission by the local authorities after some (new)
    residents in the area started kicking up a fuss about the noise and
    the reduction in the quality of their lives.

    Seems to be a bit of a national trend at the moment. The KRC 24 hour
    event has had a 98db noise limit slapped on it too. Imposed by the
    circuit owners at the moment, but the noise campaigners will not be
    far behind, rest assured.

    So, could I buy a house by a main railway line and get the line closed

    In a word, no. There are certain exemptions, and for "Railway
    Undertakers" is one of them. To a certain extent.

    Economics, innit. Get a cheap house as there is a well known nuisance,
    complain, get an order for silence: instant increase of price of house.

    Bugger. How about a busy motorway or other road?
