Cartmel Racecource, Lake District National Park

Equine Planning Solutions were commissioned by the Holker Group to master plan the future development of Cartmel Racecourse.

The exciting proposals comprise a number of improvements to the racecourse including new stables, groom’s accommodation, campsite, re-modelling of the parade ring and saddling boxes together with the introduction of flexible public spaces as well as further improvements to race day spectator access and car parking.

Equine Planning Solutions worked closely with Cartmel Racecourse Managing Director Jonathan Garratt to produce a scheme that not only benefited the racecourse but the wider community of Cartmel. The proposals were closely linked with the development of the Cartmel Townscape Initiative encompassing a range of issues including heritage, economic viability, as well as improvements to the public realm.
