  We propose a Plasma Accelerator Research Station (PARS) based at proposed FEL test facility Compact Linear Accelerator for Research and Applications (CLARA) at Daresbury lab. The idea is to use the relativistic electron beam from CLARA, to investigate some key issues in electron beam transport and in the electron beam driven plasma wakefield acceleration, e.g. the two bunch acceleration for CLARA beam energy doubling, high transformer ratio, long bunch self-modulation and the related beam instabilities. This paper discusses the feasibility studies of electron beam parameters to meet the requirements for beam driven wakefield acceleration and the possible experiments which can be conducted at PARS beam line.
