Cherwell Competition Centre, Oxfordshire

First opened in the late 1950’s the Centre has long been associated with prestigious show jumping events such as the Dunhill International. Today, Cherwell offers some of the best competition facilities in the UK following major redevelopment of the Centre’s outdoor arenas in 2015.

Equine Planning Solutions were tasked with designing and obtaining planning approval for the new facilities which included a 95m x 55m all-weather outdoor arena and traditional grass arena.

The site which is within the Greenbelt is subject to numerous planning constraints which had to be overcome to allow the existing facilities to be improved.
