Providing leisure and community facilities

We provide substantial community facilities as part of our UK planning obligations. Our developments often integrate parks and green spaces, play areas for children and community centres, for example at Grand Union Village in West London (See the Spotlight on Community engagement in our Case study section).

In 2010, a £10 million community and learning campus part funded by Taylor Wimpey opened at our development, The Bridge in Dartford. The campus sits within a 264 acre site and includes a primary school, a nursery, healthcare and social services facilities, a sports hall, a sensory garden, youth and adult education centres as well as a community room. Also in 2010, work started on a £2.5 million multi-use community sports centre and gym that we are helping to fund at our Cambourne development near Cambridge.

Considerate construction

We fully support the principles of the Considerate Constructors Scheme and participate in the scheme on many of our larger UK developments. For the second year in a row our consortium development, Ironstone at Lawley, won a Gold Considerate Constructors Scheme Award. We also won a Bronze Award for our Campbell Park development in Milton Keynes.
