Joule Road, Basingstoke

Paul Basham Associates undertook extensive negotiations with local highways officers to overcome parking concerns and secure approval.

The Brief

Paul Basham Associates were approached by JKL Architecture to overcome concerns from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council regarding the impact that a change of use application from B1 to D2 at Joule Road, Basingstoke would have on the level of on-street parking in the local area.

Our Approach

Information received from CrossFit (the intended end user) regarding typical usage of their sites was presented to highways officers in order to demonstrate the expected level of parking accumulation and therefore that the proposed parking provision would be sufficient to avoid any impact on the local highway network. 

This data was broken down by day and hour in order to provide a comprehensive analysis of parking accumulation that was sufficient to overcome the highways objection. 

The Result

Following the submission of this information and additional details on the end user of the site Paul Basham Associates successfully overcame highways concerns and helped secure planning consent.
