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.

This website is home to information about our plans so far, including our consultation events (Chapter One and Chapter Two), Design Review Panels, current emerging masterplan, and Community Liaison Group.

Taylor Wimpey is pleased to launch the third and final chapter of our community consultation for the Former Wisley Airfield and hope that you will be able to join us.

Our third series of online community consultation events will take place on two different days to allow everyone to attend. These dates will be Wednesday 19th May 2021 between 6pm – 8pm & Saturday 22nd May 2021 between 10am – 12pm.

The site and allocation

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.
