Previously the site of the 165 year old Rose in June Public House, Paul Basham Associates helped rejuvenate the area by providing both planning and technical assistance for this new retail store
As the former pub ceased trading in 2007, our team undertook a Transport Statement to assist the planning application for the redevelopment comprising a proposed convenience retail store.
Once approval was granted, a Section 278 was required to implement the proposed off-site highway works required as part of the planning conditions.
Negotiating with both Havant and Hampshire County Council, the Transport Statement considered the previous applications on-site, whilst also providing detail of the proposed improvements to pedestrian infrastructure, justified car parking provision, trip generation and servicing arrangements.
Once approval was granted Paul Basham Associates undertook the detailed highway design which included footway improvements to the retail frontage, loading bay facilities and access to the proposed car park to the rear of the site. As part of the loading bay requirements a TRO was required to ensure the layby operated correctly as a result of the redevelopment.
A shortened project programme required us to utilise our good working relationships with Hampshire County Council and get technical approval as part of a pre-occupation condition on the highway works.
We negotiated full technical approval for the Section 278 Highway Works in summer 2014 and the works were completed shortly after, in line with the opening of the retail store.
