Folland Court, Hamble

Providing our range of multi-disciplinary services to this retirement scheme in Hamble, Paul Basham Associates are pleased to see the finished product up and running.

The brief

From leading retirement housebuilder McCarthy & Stone, Paul Basham Associates were instructed to undertake the necessary Transport Planning and Section 278 works to aid in the build of this 27 unit scheme on the former Harrier public house site in the village of Hamble-le-Rice, Hampshire.

Our approach

Our scope of works included a Transport Statement, which included details on access, car, cycle & buggy parking and accessibility as well as refuse arrangements. Access proved particularly constrained given the location between two existing and well used right turn lanes. As with all McCarthy & Stone projects, particular emphasis was given to the age range of these residents, and therefore pedestrian access and crossing arrangements were an important factor when undertaking this work.

Working closely with Eastleigh Borough Council throughout this project, we subsequently completed the Section 278 design works, which included access, a section of footway and a pedestrian refuge island to provide ease of access for pedestrians to the nearby shopping parade.

The result

Now built and fully operational, Paul Basham Associates are pleased to see residents actively using the refuge island, with parking continually monitored to ensure demand is catered for.

From our client

We have worked on over 200 schemes as a company with Paul Basham Associates, and are always impressed by its ability to provide honest, sound advice at all stages of a project; from site appraisals through to post planning in both its transport planning and civil engineering teams.
