Our business model

Our business model helps us to deliver on our purpose.

Taylor Wimpey development

1. Investment: Selecting land

Shareholder capital management

Ensuring long term sustainability of the business through securing a quality land pipeline, located in places people want to live, with good planning prospects. Our strong land position comprises both short term land (land with some form of planning permission) and strategic land (land with no residential planning at the time we take a commercial interest).

2. Development: Managing the community and planning process

Protecting capital and adding value

Progressing land through the planning system is the key way we add value to the land we acquire. Securing good quality planning permissions benefits both our land portfolio and the communities in which we build, providing much needed new homes, affordable housing, infrastructure and community facilities through planning obligations.

3. Realising value: Optimising the housebuilding process

Optimising stakeholder returns

Key to this is building quality homes which are attractive to customers. Health and safety is our first priority and is not an area we will compromise. We seek to do the right thing, and deliver our strategy in a way that benefits all our stakeholders.

As a national housebuilder we benefit from our scale in terms of pricing and the visibility and certainty we are able to provide to our partners and look to maximise and optimise the efficiency of our operations.
