Donington has planning permission?

The word in the paddock at Silverstone is that Donington Park already has planning permission for a major rebuild to create a new F1-standard facility by 2010. The Leicestershire County Council planning authority, which covers Donington, does not currently have anything to this effect on its website, although the most recent application listed was on July 1. It is possible that the circuit has been through a complicated pre-application procedure and that planning permission will be officially granted now that an application has been made.
