Residential construction and development partnerships with local authorities and housing associations

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

With the backing of the Wates Group, Wates Residential can share risk on planning, construction and market sales activity with our partners, helping to remove the barriers preventing schemes from getting to site.

Our partnership housing offer includes building and selling homes to the public in addition to providing affordable homes for social landlords. We can also bring financial investment to a scheme, add value for customers through our development and marketing agency services and manage the sale of new homes.

We apply a special type of regeneration to every scheme that we develop. This looks beyond bricks and mortar and is focused on supporting the wider long-term development of sustainable communities by placing local needs at the heart of every development.

We are also committed to leaving a positive legacy for the local community by targeting local procurement, the creation of local training and employment opportunities and investing in local charitable organisations and community groups.
