Former Wisley Airfield

Working together to deliver our sustainable community

Taylor Wimpey

Taylor Wimpey is pleased to have completed the purchase of the former Wisley Airfield site and look forward to developing our proposals over the coming months.

We understand the importance of listening to the needs and feedback of local communities and we will be working closely with local residents and stakeholders as we look to shape our plans for this new community.

Our consultation on the plans for the former Wisley Airfield is now live and we would like to hear what you think.

  • We want to work together to deliver our sustainable community
  • This website will be home to all the information about our plans.
  • All information about our upcoming consultation events will be posted on this site.
  • This website will be updated regularly to let you know what we are doing to ensure community engagement. Please subscribe below to receive updates.

We understand that there is a long planning history of this site that has not always been a positive one. As the new landowner, we want to work collaboratively with stakeholders to change this.

  • We will work together with local authority members, community stakeholders and neighbours to ensure all voices are heard.
  • We will continue to operate in a transparent and open manner.
  • Documents relating to the site will be published on the document library, including presentations and leaflets.
