Cheltenham Racecourse
New Stand


Project Objective


To support the Planning Application for the proposed £45 million development with Transportation and Highways Engineering services.

Services provided:

  • Transportation and Traffic advice
  • Transport Assessment
  • Production of the Travel Plan
  • Design of off-site highway and pedestrian improvements
  • Liaison with Gloucestershire County Highways Department
  • Contribution towards, and participation in, the Public Consultation

Project Description:

At a projected £45 million, the development will be The Jockey Club's largest single investment in facilities at the racecourse.

The Stilwell Partnership was appointed to provide Highway Engineering consultancy services to support the passage of the Planning Application for this prestigious project. This support brought to a successful conclusion when Cheltenham Borough Council awarded Planning Consent in July 2013.

The proposed development will create a state-of-the-art new grandstand alongside the existing main grandstand, replacing the circa 1920s "A&R" block.

It will include new annual members' facilities, general public viewing areas, private boxes and the Royal Box. The project will include improvements for owners and trainers, and include elevated walkways to ease mobility and multi-tiered viewing of the parade ring.
