Bewilderwood                                  

Norfolk

The Bidwells’ team achieved planning permission for an Outdoor Adventure Park for approx 80,000 visitors in the Broads. It is an excellent example of high quality, sustainable tourism development. 

Given the sensitivity of the environment, the application required close co-ordination with a range of consultants to produce an Ecological Assessment, Transport Assessment and Landscape and Visual Assessment, as well as detailed design proposals prepared by the Landscape Architecture & Urban Design team.

The success was primarily due to the quality of the scheme and a strategy for extensive early consultation with key bodies. The application was unanimously approved by The Broads Authority. Despite residents’ initial objection, Bewilderwood has become a hugely successful and popular attraction and a source of local pride.
