Care Home Needs Assessment,
Newton

Bidwells assessed the need for an elderly care home as part of a village assessment to understand the development potential of our client’s site.

 What we did

 

  • To support the submission of our clients site as an allocation in the next Greater Cambridge Local Plan we undertook:

1. A socio-economic assessment of Newton village, covering population, housing, community infrastructure, open space and economic activity

2. Modelled the need for care homes places

 

Result

 

  • Our research identified a need for care homes in this area

  • This work informed the masterplan and development proposals for the site to generate an evidence based submission

  • It identified benefits and threats to the site’s successful allocation, helping to inform the planning and design strategy

  • This gave the client confidence in the robustness of the submission
