Great Wilbraham
Estate Trustees

Bidwells was instructed by the Trustees of the Estate to explore the options for a 148 acre solar farm in Cambridgeshire.

What we did


  • We selected a suitable solar developer with a proven track record to take forward the site and secure planning permission

  • Negotiated the commercial terms for the option and lease

  • Liaised with the landowner's solicitor to complete the option and lease documents

  • Assisted with the preparation of the planning application by providing supporting documentation




  •  Planning permission was granted by South Cambridgeshire District Council on 28 July 2014

  • The project was successfully constructed and commissioned prior to 31 March 2015, securing 1.4 Renewable Obligation (RO) per MW/h

  • We continue to be involved with the ongoing management of the site including invoicing the rent, carrying out the annual rent reviews and dealing with any landlord and tenant issues that arise
