Car park transformation planned for Charlton BMX track

Test Valley Borough Council is proposing to transform the car park at Charlton BMX track to enhance the facility for visitors.


At a cabinet meeting on Wednesday night, council chiefs unanimously agreed to back the work, which would include surfacing the part of the car park that is currently unsurfaced and installing new lighting and an automated gate.


The car park is used by a variety of clubs and groups, including the athletics club, BMX riders, the sports academy, hockey and rugby players and Andover parkrun.


TVBC is also working with Andover Football Club, which is owned by the authority, to explore the possibility of further increasing the number of parking spaces for community use to help tackle the issue of insufficient spaces at peak times.


The project will go to full council in January for final approval.


Leisure portfolio holder, councillor Ian Jeffrey, said:

These works will be great news for all those who use the site. The BMX track car park is popular with a variety of clubs and this will help to enhance the experience for visitors.

The proposal to increase the number of spaces for community use would hopefully provide welcome relief for all those who struggle to park at peak times.
