As part of its commitment to supporting local communities, Taylor Wimpey will put over £400,000 into improving the area around its Ambrose Gardens development in Swindon.

Through contributions agreed as part of the planning permission for the development, the housebuilder will put over £298,000 towards Swindon Borough Council’s Community Interest Levy. This can be spent on a variety of resources and infrastructure around the town, including education, culture, sports and sustainability projects.

Taylor Wimpey is also pledging over £96,000 to Swindon Borough Council to be put towards the maintenance of community facilities in Swindon. A total of £69,000 will be spent improving Wichelstowe play area and its surroundings, while £27,200 will go towards improvements at Swindon Polo Ground and £6,000 will be spent removing double yellow lines opposite the proposed access junction to Ambrose Gardens. 

Taylor Wimpey is also committed to helping community groups and organisations in and around Swindon and has previously donated high visibility jackets to 3rd Swindon Wichelstowe Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, helping the members keep safe outside. 

Gary Needham, Land and Planning Director for Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, said: “We’re so proud of what we are doing to support the community around Ambrose Gardens. Through funding improvements to open spaces, leisure facilities, highways and more, we are committed not only to providing quality homes but also to ensuring that we are giving back to the communities in which we build. It’s a real privilege to be involved with the community of Swindon.”

Taylor Wimpey’s Ambrose Gardens, off Croft Road, Swindon, SN1 4DT, is due to launch in spring 2020. A selection of two, three and four bedroom homes will be available. To find out more, please call 01249 475515 or visit www.taylorwimpey.co.uk.
