Andover Riding School, Weyhill Road, Andover

Andover Riding School has improved and enhanced facilities with the help of Paul Basham Associates transport team.


When the proposed family run riding school was met with concerns by Test Valley’s highway officers in relation to the site access design and on-site vehicle turning movements, Paul Basham Associates were approached to overcome the issues raised.


Our team were asked to review the design proposals and the officer’s concerns, providing advice to the client to rearrange the internal site layout to accommodate large vehicles, which would be required to deliver hay and bedding to the new riding school. An independent Stage 1 Road Safety Audit was organised by Paul Basham Associates to review the site access proposals onto the A342, a designer’s response prepared, and internal layout tracking was undertaken.


The riding school was ultimately granted consent and is now in full operation, offering lessons for riders of all ages and abilities.

From our client

Thank you so much for your valued experience and prompt action you took with the highways planning application, which has been approved with your survey. I would recommend you to others.
