Paultons Park, Hampshire
RPS has secured a series of consents for the south of England’s most successful theme park, Paultons Park, located in the New Forest National Park.
RPS secured a lawful development certificate for the entire theme park, which regularised the existence of the park, which had been operating since 1983. Most of the rides were also lawful so no planning applications were needed.
RPS also secured planning permission for two major rides, the Cobra and Edge rides, which are two of Paultons Park’s most popular attractions.
Planning permission was secured, following negotiation with the National Park Authority’s Environmental Health Officer, and significant consultation with the local community.
RPS also advised Paultons Park on the development of Peppa Pig World, which opened in 2011, and on the development of new park entrance buildings, containing admissions, restaurant, retail and offices.
