Land Promotion and Disposal for Development in Melbourn

Bidwells was instructed to dispose approximately 27 acres of land with the benefit of outline planning permission for up to 199 residential dwellings and a care home of up to 75 bed spaces in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire.

What we did

  • Identified Endurance Estates Strategic Land as promotion partner
  • Negotiated commercial terms for the promotion agreement on behalf of Peterhouse
  • Monitored Endurance Estates Strategic Land’s obligations under the promotion agreement 
  • Acted as agent in the disposal of the site to Hopkins Homes and a local care home operator.



  • A window of opportunity was seen with South Cambridgeshire District Council’s lack of five-year housing land supply
  • Outline planning permission was granted on appeal
  • One of the key objectives was to secure a development partner with a high-quality design agenda. This will be achieved through the careful selection of Hopkins
  • Homes Limited as development partner.
