Stockeld Park, Wetherby

Connect Consultants worked alongside Corstorphine & Wright Architects on an exciting project to expand and diversify the existing attractions at Stockeld Park in Wetherby.

The team prepared a planning application for an indoor play facility of approximately 1,860 sq.m.  The proposals sought to make the adventure park more sustainable over varying weather conditions by offering an alternative array of indoor installations and attractions.

Connect produced a Transport Statement, which used existing traffic survey data and footfall information to predict the seasonal impacts that could result from traffic associated with the proposed development.

The Transport Statement was accepted by the Local Highway Authority, and it was agreed that the predicted traffic effect could be accommodated within the existing highway and transport infrastructure.  Planning permission was granted by Harrogate Borough Council.

Thoulstone Park

Connect Consultants successfully worked alongside Trail Architects to deliver a mixed use ‘Eco Leisure’ proposal at Thoultsone Park, near Warminster, Wiltshire.

The site, a former golf club with golf course, driving range and hotel is substantial at approximately 40Ha.  The proposal would see the site redeveloped to provide holiday accommodation, restaurant, farm shop and leisure/conferencing facilities, accessed from the A36 trunk road.

The site was granted planning permission under delegated powers, with Highways England and County Highways support.
