Change of use for a
world famous tennis club

Bidwells provided research and analysis into tennis activity in Cambridgeshire to support the change of use of a tennis facility for housing development.

 What we did


  • Assessed the quantity and quality of public and private tennis court provision in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire 

  • Using GIS we analysed tennis court locations and club membership changes over time

  • Prepared evidence on factors that influence tennis participation with reference to location and accessibility

  • Researched the impact of the club’s relocation of its own membership and that of other clubs




  • Successfully challenged local plan policy protecting open spaces and requiring the site to be retained for sports use

  • Housing development proposed was deemed an acceptable use for the site

  • Planning consent was granted
