Wates Residential is one of the UK’s leading developers, operating across London and the South. The business works with local authority and housing association partners to build more and better homes. This is driven by the team’s shared vision that everyone deserves a great place to live.

The business applies a special type of regeneration to the areas that it develops. This is focused on adding social and environmental value beyond building homes. Every development is bespoke to the needs of the local community and involves meaningful consultation with local stakeholders to support the development of long-term sustainable communities.
