      Masterplanning

      With integrity and expertise, we guide our clients towards investing in property long-term, helping to achieve a sustainable future.

      Court Lodge Farm

      Identifying, securing and managing a rare farming asset with the right balance of short, medium and long-term opportunities.

      The development industry has a huge role to play in the essential work of tackling climate change and creating sustainable communities. Through Masterplanning and urban design, you can make well-informed decisions now to contribute to hitting net zero carbon by 2050 and alleviating economic uncertainty.

      With a context-led approach, we ensure any proposed Master-plan is site-specific and responds to a site’s constraints and opportunities. This ensures we deliver an exemplary result for our clients’ time and time again.

      Behind each Master-plan drawing are several thematic layers; the open spaces, amenities, teaching and research needs, energy requirements, carbon neutrality and renewable energy opportunities, noise constraints, cost appraisals and quality of life for future residents.

      All these facets need careful consideration to form a Master-plan and design that delivers on your priorities and contributes to green infrastructure.

      By providing master planning services and obtaining an allocation in a local plan, or by assisting in preparing a planning application, we can unlock your site for sustainable development.

      Social Value

      Delivering social value through developments is now required by updated compliance and policy, and by society more generally. This means a more sustainable and clearly articulated development resulting in a more valuable and marketable product and is something we are passionate about at Bidwells.
