Community Benefits from the development
A home is more than just a house, it’s also about the community that surrounds it. And that’s why we’re invested in building communities that support local businesses, provide much needed facilities for the area and bring people together.
To support the growing community in Normanton we’ll be contributing over £520,000 towards additional primary, secondary and sixth-form education places at local schools as part of our planning obligations for Clover View. We’ll also be providing 28 hectares of open space, creating a large recreational area for all to enjoy. Alongside this, our contributions to Wakefield Council will help to improve the local infrastructure.

Taylor Wimpey team unleash their inner dragon to raise vital funds for local hospice
Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire recently took to the water adorned in fancy dress, to try their oar at winning a dragon boat race in support of local charity, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.
The team raised a staggering £1,280 with £1,000 of the total donated by the Taylor Wimpey Charity Committee. Held at Pugney’s Country Park, twelve crews from across West Yorkshire climbed into boats ready to battle it out in a series of races over a 200m course.
Made up of nine team members from Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, the ambitious rowers signed up after receiving a flyer promoting the race day.
The competition was fierce and the strength and determination of team, ‘Yorkshire’s Fastest Fridgemen’ from Crowther and Shaw, proved too fast for the ‘Taylor Wimpey Trouts,’ who pipped them to the post a nail-biting final race.
All for a worthy cause, the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice is a ground-breaking facility situated close to Taylor Wimpey’s housing developments, Robinson’s Place and Crosfield Park II in Mirfield and Lindley respectively. The charity’s goal is to provide a new approach to hospice care that is focused on tailored therapies and is nurse-led in its overall treatment plans.
Ryan Grint, regional fundraiser at Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, says: “If it wasn’t for organisations like Taylor Wimpey recognising and supporting the work we do in West Yorkshire, we simply wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
“This saw our first ever Dragon Boat Race take place at Pugneys Country Park in Wakefield and we were delighted to see Taylor Wimpey not just enter a team, but also raise a fantastic total with all proceeds going to support local children and families.
“From everyone at Forget Me Not we want to say a huge thank you to the Taylor Wimpey team for their support.”
