Oxford to Cambridge Arc
We are the leading property consultancy in the Arc. Our deep understanding of the region and unrivalled knowledge of its markets are the source of our ability to unlock value.
International investors are being drawn like a magnet by the Arc’s world-leading universities and its innovative businesses, while the Government continues to support large-scale growth in the region.
At Bidwells, we believe the Arc will shape the UK’s future; setting an example of how truly sustainable economic growth should be delivered.
How the knowledge economy in the Arc can help with levelling up across the UK
Following the fantastic response to our Future of Life Sciences webinar last year, the Arc Universities Group, CBI and Bidwells are teaming up again to discuss how further investment in the Arc’s knowledge economy can help to drive the Government’s levelling-up agenda.
Local and national Government leaders have committed to doubling nature across the Arc.
The knowledge economy is not driven simply by a chase for growth.
We are advising on developments across the Arc with a value of over £56bn.
A single planning framework for the Arc will help direct investment into employment space, improved transport links and new housing – a real game changer.
We’re all epidemiologists now. Can AstraZeneca and Oxford Uni inspire a generation of Ox-Cam Arc placemakers?
News of AstraZeneca’s recent Covid-19 partnership agreement with the University of Oxford echoed around the world. The deal would see the Cambridge-based pharmaceutical giant producing billions of doses of a vaccine currently being trialled at The Jenner Institute in Oxford, at no profit, and effectively bring an end to the global crisis.
Vision for the Arc
With Government’s consultation for the Oxford to Cambridge Arc vision launched, EG and Bidwells came together to discuss what this means for the region and the opportunities it presents.
Unleashing the Arc: Spatial Framework

Unleashing the Arc: Academia, Science and Tech
The Arc is home to world-leading Science & Tech companies. But how can we ensure they attract the best talent, from top universities, to enable this sector to flourish? And can we provide the development and infrastructure needed to retain them?
Unleashing the Arc: Build, Build, Build
With central Government proposing an Arc-wide spatial strategy and four development corporations for the Arc, is MHCLG now striking the right balance with local policy-making to Build, Build, Build at the pace required?
Unleashing the Arc: Is the green belt choking green economic growth?
While the Government is planning for large-scale infrastructure and economic growth in the Ox- Cam Arc, the Wildlife Trust is promoting it’s bold green vision for the region. We will discussed how we can create a regional ‘green infrastructure plan’.
