Brief

Sherdon’s Golf Limited appointed Cotswold Transport Planning to consider the suitability of the existing access to accommodate additional development at the site including an adventure golf facility, extension to the driving range, together with a cafeteria.

An access arrangement drawing and Technical Note were produced.

Issues & Solutions

Site access suitability was the main issue which needed to be considered for the site. In order to consider the suitability of the access speed survey data was obtained and an access drawing was produced which demonstrated that the access was safe and suitable in geometric and visibility terms to accommodate the increase in traffic that would be generated by the development proposal.

The Technical Note explained the method for calculating the required visibility splays based on recorded speeds, in accordance with national and local transport planning guidance.

Results

Gloucestershire County Council agreed with Cotswold Transport Planning’s assessment and recommended that no highway objection be raised to the scheme.
