Welcome Arnold Clark

Arnold Clark Car Rental Company
Arnold Clark Car Rental Company

It’s good to see the former Ridgeway Car Sales site being made ready for use again.

The new operators of the site are Arnold Clark, a car rental company.

The vast majority of local people are very relieved that this appears to put an end to the threat of fast food outlets being located at this busy roundabout entrance.

The Planning Inspector who overturned the decision of New Forest District Council not to give permission for fast food outlets didn’t seem to understand the highway safety fears associated with such heavy traffic movements.

It also removes the threat of all the associated takeaway litter.

The use of this site by Arnold Clark is going to be broadly the same as the former usage with Ridgeway Cars.

When I think of the battles we had over this, the public and private meetings, the lobbying, the ups and downs with Hampshire highways, the planning decision, the Inspector involvement, the commercial decision not to progress the scheme… it just goes to show… if the community and its’ representatives are resilient enough, we can sometimes get what we want!
