Taylor Wimpey – Sellindge Phase 1

We aim to build attractive, high-quality homes and communities, with a focus on the following.

Selecting land

Land is the critical ‘raw material’ for our business and the ability to purchase the right sites in the right locations at the right price and at the right point in the cycle is a key driver of shareholder value.

Managing community engagement and the planning process

Community engagement is all about keeping local people informed and up to date with what we are doing and encouraging them to take part in consultation so that they can have their say on our development proposals.  We must do this effectively if we are to design sustainable developments that meet the needs of local residents, are attractive to customers and provide appropriate returns for our business. We aim to become the industry leader in managing the planning process across our business.

Getting the homebuilding basics right

We work with selected subcontractors and use carefully sourced materials to make sure that the homes we sell are of a high quality, are built safely, efficiently and cost-effectively and have as little effect as possible on the environment.

Caring about our customers

Buying a home is a significant financial and emotional investment and we aim to make buying, moving into and living in a Taylor Wimpey home as easy as possible for our customers. Delivering a great product and service that goes beyond our customers’ expectations is at the heart of what we do.
