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.
Taylor Wimpey Community Presentation
Taylor Wimpey would like to thank everyone who attended the Community Presentation at The Former Ripley Primary School on Tuesday 26th April.

History of the site
The former Wisley Airfield is a site with a wealth of history. The site was formerly a grass airstrip before being converted to tarmac to test aircraft. The site has since been owned by multiple landowners and Taylor Wimpey purchased the site earlier in 2020.
The Wisley Airfield grass airstrip runway was converted to tarmac to test aircraft.
Different planning applications submitted to develop the site.
Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government granted planning permission for a composting facility on the site which has been implemented but not completed.
Guildford Borough Council allocated the site in the Local Plan, removing it from the Green Belt.
Taylor Wimpey purchased the site.
