Astbury Hall Golf
and Leisure Resort

Bidwells Socioeconomics was instructed by FCFM Group to assess the economic impact of redeveloping the Astbury Hall Estate in Shropshire, as a highquality golf and leisure resort.

 What we did


  • Undertook a thorough analysis of the existing tourism and leisure offer in Shropshire

  • Worked with the client to estimate the number and type of direct employment opportunities the proposal would likely deliver

  • Modelled the potential net expenditure by visitors to the resort in the local economy

  • Modelled the potential net expenditure by the resort on supplies and services in the local economy

  • Calculated the potential net expenditure during construction and resulting employment




  • The assessment was well received by the County Council and gained the support of the Economic Development Team and the local Chamber of Commerce. The scheme subsequently achieved planning permission following officer recommendation for approval
