Former Wisley Airfield Proposals Achieve Building with Nature Award

Taylor Wimpey is delighted to announce that plans for the former Wisley Airfield, Guildford, have been given the Building with Nature Design Award, the UK’s first Green Infrastructure benchmark.

The Building with Nature accreditation recognises the exemplary approach taken by the design team to prioritise Green Infrastructure within the Wisley Airfield development proposals, and reinforces Taylor Wimpey’s commitment to creating thriving new communities where residents can enjoy a healthy, active and sustainable lifestyle.

The plans include 42.5-hectare Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space (SANG), strategic parks, interlinked village greens, and 61,000m2 of new woodland and native scrub. These have all been pivotal to the layout of the proposed new neighbourhood which would consist of 1,730 homes, schools, healthcare facilities, sports, shops and other community infrastructure, and which was allocated in the Guildford Local Plan.
