About Taylor Wimpey
We pride ourselves on having a local knowledge of each area we build in, gained through our regional operating businesses. Achieving a viable and appropriate planning permission (one that balances the needs of the community with those of our business) efficiently and consistently is at the heart of our business strategy and we are committed to following an approach that puts the community at the centre of this process.
We have land and planning teams in each of our 24 regional offices, with strategic land teams (that manage the development of land with potential and promote it through the planning system) that operate across the UK. Our teams use their experience and local knowledge to identify potential high-quality sites.
As well as our local knowledge, we have the expertise provided by our small central land and planning team which includes experts in the fields of planning, Brownfield remediation (the treatment of contaminated land to allow development) and regeneration. As a large national developer we buy sites using various types of contractual agreements, and we regularly work with both private- and public-sector organisations.
At the earliest stage of any project it is important that we identify and understand any issues or opportunities that could affect our design for the site. These may relate to matters such as access, ground conditions, contamination, the environment and ecology, the planning requirements and urban design. This will allow us to manage the risks and opportunities so that we can provide the best possible design. Site assessments and studies will provide the starting point for the technical reports that are a part of the planning application.
For a nationwide developer, understanding the planning system can provide both opportunities and risks when moving forward with a development site. We, however, have an excellent record for achieving planning permission. We have considerable experience and expertise, across the UK, in both outline planning and detailed planning processes (including Reserved Matters applications). We have significant experience of completing Design and Access Statements and putting together the technical reports that are a part of the planning submissions (such as Environmental and Flood Impact Assessments). We aim to achieve a consistent quality of planning applications that capture the spirit of the developments they are promoting.
