We have a team of people in each of our regional businesses dedicated to buying land. That usually includes Land Managers, a Land & Planning Director and the Managing Director who has overall responsibility for each development.
As a Land and Planning Director, Andrew Taylor (below) is responsible for the land acquisition strategy at Taylor Wimpey Midlands and works closely with key stakeholders such as landowners, local authorities and communities to build strong relationships at each step of the land and planning process, from land acquisition to community engagement.
Andrew said: “Negotiating the detailed terms of a land deal with landowners, agents and lawyers and then seeing this land being designed into a new community where people want to live is one of the most enjoyable aspects of my job. It’s both demanding and rewarding.”
