Former Wisley Airfield

Working together to deliver our sustainable community

Taylor Wimpey completed the purchase of the former Wisley Airfield site in March 2020. We have been working closely with local residents and stakeholders to shape our plans for this new community, and are grateful for the time the community has spent taking part in consultations, community groups and providing feedback and comments.
