Bidwells was instructed on a previously under-managed section of the Diocese’s Glebe Portfolio and has been working with the Diocese of Oxford to ensure that the portfolio is regularised and opportunities are identified which meet the wider objectives of the client, including a significant residential development scheme.


“ Bidwells had to tackle the mundane and complex multiple ownership development sites and in each case, brought inhouse expertise from other offices. Communication has always been good, and this has been the key to our excellent working relationship with them.“ 
David Mason, Director of Glebe and Buildings
