Skylark Golf & Country Club, Whiteley

Paul Basham Associates provided travel plan assistance for this application to change the use of an existing barn to provide a wedding ceremony venue at the Skylark Golf and Country Club in Whiteley, Hampshire.

THE BRIEF

Paul Basham Associates were approached by Skylark Golf & Country Club to support a revised application which addressed highway comments associated with the refusal of a previous application. Our team visited the site on a number of occasions to observe traffic behaviour and audit local accessibility, liaising closely with the owners of Skylark Golf & Country Club and the Local Planning Authority.

OUR APPROACH

Our transport team provided a full travel plan to support this application ensuring a scheme was in place to reduce the movement of cars to and from the venue and ensure that it operates in a sustainable manner for years to come.

We also assessed the development to encourage pedestrian travel to the proposed development as well as cycle, bus and rail, analysing the likely peak periods for a wedding venue as well as the likely origin of customers travelling to the development.

THE RESULT

The Golf & Country Club achieved planning permission and now operates as a successful wedding venue, Paul Basham Associates were pleased to assist Skylark Golf & Country Club in spreading the love!
