Development vision and business plan, Lepe Country Park

Country park visitor centre business planClient: Hampshire County Council

Lepe is a coastal country park, located within the New Forest National Park and it an important recreational and education resource. The country park faces a number of challenges including rising sea levels and built visitor facilities which are reaching the end of their design life.

Working with Hampshire County Council we prepared a Development Strategy for the country park, which included a site assessment, market review, consultation exercise, options appraisal, concept development and business appraisal of the preferred option. Latterly working with the architectural team we advised on design / operational considerations for a community engagement strategy to develop a new visitor hub.
