Elderly Housing Needs Assessment,
in Cholsey

Bidwells assessed the need for specialist elderly housing, to determine the development potential of our client’s site.

 What we did


  • To help define the site development proposals, we undertook research and analysis to quantify the demand for, and supply of, specialist elderly accommodation in South Oxfordshire

  • This identified an evidence based quantum of elderly needs accommodation for the site, which was incorporated into the masterplan

  • It was part of a larger piece of research to identify the site’s development potential, for retail, employment and community infrastructure




  • The research helped persuade planning officers and other local stakeholders about the appropriateness of including elderly housing in this location during the pre-app process

  • Defining these local and county wide housing, health and wellbeing benefits, helped make the case that planning consent be given despite the site not being allocated in the Neighbourhood or Local Plan
