Having met the various interested parties on site a couple of weeks ago, it seems that in principle there is no objection and in fact some support for the concept.
The next step would be to take it to the next partnership meeting. It might be an idea to print my photo of the track I used in Germany to show at any meeting. It may also be an idea to propose an initial test track, say, 100 metres to see how it beds down.
Sorry I'm not around for the time being!
