Paul Basham Associates Success with a ‘Tree-O’ of Sites in The New Forest

Paul Basham Associates have scored a hat-trick in the New Forest with three planning consents in November for sites with a combined total of 213 dwellings.

Derritt Lane in Bransgore, Gore Road in New Milton, and Alexandra Road in Lymington offered very different challenges for the Paul Basham Associates team which produced their full range of Transport Planning services to see these three great schemes across the line.

Paul Basham Associates supported repeat client Pennyfarthing for both the Gore Road (New Milton) scheme, totalling 28 residential units, and the Alexandra Road (Lymington) scheme for 87 dwellings. For both projects our team provided their full range of transport planning services including pre application support, access design (without prejudicing a potential wider allocation in NFDC’s emerging Local Plan) site and full Transport Assessment for the Alexandra Road scheme.







For the Gore Road application we provided a full Transport Statement, visibility assessment from the proposed access point, vehicle swept path analysis, and parking assessment. our team liaised closely with the client and project teams as well as the local authority throughout both of these schemes and were delighted to see them approved.

For the scheme in Bransgore Paul Basham Associates were pleased to assist another long term client Bellway Homes for this application for 22 additional dwellings on the site at Derritt Lane. PBA originally supported an outline application for Phase 1 of this development back in 2014 and were happy to once again provide advice and technical guidance for a fantastic scheme. Our team provided access advice including visibility splays and swept path analysis as well as a Section 278 application and design for the Bellmouth accesses and a new footway along Derritt Lane linking the site with the growing rural town.

Paul Basham Associates were delighted with the outcome of these schemes both individually and collectively and look forward to expanding their growing portfolio in the New Forest District. In the meantime we look forward to seeing these great schemes built out and occupied!
