About Taylor Wimpey
In the last few years we have built over 60% of our homes on brownfield land and so the way in which that land is improved to the high standards needed for redevelopment is very important to us.
As a responsible residential developer we aim to be at the forefront of thinking in relation to how land is treated and managed. To achieve this, we work closely with a number of UK and Europe wide organisations to research and develop new technologies and techniques in land use management.
Ian Heasman, Director of Sustainability, is leading Taylor Wimpey’s engagement with the following organisations:
The Network for Industrially Contaminated Land in Europe
Taylor Wimpey is a member of NICOLE, the Network for Industrially Contaminated Land in Europe, a leading forum on contaminated land management in Europe. Our personnel have chaired working groups on waste and brownfield. The brownfield working group have recently published research on environmental liability transfer in a European context.
We are a member of the Soil and Groundwater Technology Association (SAGTA) which is a not-for-profit association of member organisations drawn from UK companies representing many major land holding sectors. Its members actively address challenges associated with the ownership and management of contaminated land and brownfield development sites.
We represent SAGTA on the Land Forum, the leading UK body promoting the sustainable use of land. The Land Forum brings together private and public sector organisations to take an open and forward looking strategic overview of current and future land use issues.
