Chester Zoo’s New Grasslands

Chester Zoo’s latest proposal in its 217 acre Natural Visions Masterplan has been approved. The new Grasslands proposals includes new habitats for giraffes, ostriches, antelopes and zebras, and 42 overnight lodges/tents.

SK prepared a Transport Assessment and Travel Plan for the planning application. And we got to do swept paths for vehicles that move giraffes, which was an exciting first!
