      John Tweddle

      Few of our Partners better personify Bidwells than John Tweddle. In his five decades with the firm, he has witnessed many changes but his forthright yet considered approach and commitment to his work and clients has resolutely withstood the test of time.

       

      John has devoted his entire working life to Bidwells, becoming a Partner in 1982 before spending 11 years as our Senior Partner (1989-2000). Since passing the baton, he attention has been focussed on the interests of Cambridge’s best-known colleges and remains the principal client contact for several of them.

      The inception and successful development of a Cambridge centre of science excellence for Trinity College in 1970 gave birth to a generation of research-led business parks, known today as science parks and clusters. John played a central role in re-examining what scientific research businesses needed from the property industry.

      He often assumes the highly-skilled role of development manager, integrating himself seamlessly. He took the 2,600-home Dunsfold Park development in Surrey from an ambitious idea to a fully formed planning permission and land sale for Trinity, acting as master developer - a role rarely undertaken outside the housebuilding industry.

      John has delivered some of Bidwells ‘most successful projects, but he is perhaps most renowned throughout our business for his genial nature and polite respect for his colleagues and team members.
