Taylor Wimpey’s East Anglia developments to reopen to customers
Following the latest UK Government guidance which came into effect on Wednesday 13th May, Taylor Wimpey East Anglia will begin a phased approach to the reopening of its sales offices and show homes across the region from Friday 22nd May.
Taylor Wimpey was the first UK homebuilder to stop construction on sites and close sales centres in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown restrictions. A phased return to construction has since restarted on a number of sites across England and Wales, with staff and subcontractors operating under a robust set of revised health and safety practices and protocols.
On Friday 22nd May, the housebuilder’s developments across East Anglia will open their doors to customers with strict social distancing requirements in place. A new set of protocols for all sales offices and show homes has been developed alongside new safety measures which have been introduced to protect the health and safety of its customers and employees. These include the installation of Perspex screens and marker guides for social distancing. Show home viewings will be unaccompanied and only one family at a time will be able to view each home.
The sales teams have been helping customers remotely through the lockdown period and customers are encouraged to maintain contact digitally where possible. Customers wishing to visit a development will need to book an appointment in advance.
Caroline Carter, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia said: “Reopening our sales offices and show homes is a significant step for both staff and customers. I want to assure the public that we are not prepared to compromise on health and safety, which is why we will be operating our sales offices on a strict appointment-only basis.
“I am confident that our revised health and safety protocols and guidelines mean that we can operate safely, and I know our sales executives are looking forward to safely welcoming customers to our developments once again. I also understand that some customers may still prefer not to visit us in person. Our sales teams have been working remotely over the past few weeks, helping customers through each stage of the homebuying journey and we will continue to offer remote appointments.”

A Taylor Wimpey home secured in two months for newly-engaged Andrew and Ash
Andrew Bright and fiancée Ash Bullman were celebrating their engagement in the Mexican sun when they made the life-changing decision to buy their first property together. Thanks to Taylor Wimpey the couple were able to find their dream home quickly and just eight weeks later had moved into a four-bedroom Midford at Tharston Meadow in the village of Tharston, Norfolk.
The couple, who had been renting a property in South Lopham for over a year, had dreamed of finding their perfect ‘forever home’ to buy together. Just a day after getting engaged in Mexico in March 2018 they decided to take the plunge, and after visiting Tharston Meadow Andrew and Ash soon settled on a traditional detached home.
Andrew said: “In the end, our choice was simple. We wanted a fresh, ‘hassle-free’ house which we could put our own stamp on, but be happy with whilst we decide what that stamp is. We also wanted a spacious home where we have enough room for family and friends to visit. Ultimately that’s what Taylor Wimpey offered us.
“We chose a Midford housetype mainly because of the large kitchen-diner. We’re always entertaining so we needed that big social room and enough bedrooms for friends and family to stay with us. We have our own business so we’ve already turned one of our four bedrooms into an office. Our plot also has a large, south-facing garden, which is ideal for us.
“Being business owners, location was high-up on our list of priorities. We’ve got friends who already lived at Tharston Meadow so we knew it was in an idyllic village but with great local amenities close by. At Tharston Meadow we’re also just 15 minutes away from work and it’s only 20 minutes to Norwich.
“The buying process was so simple and easy. We reserved in March and moved to our lovely new home in May. We cannot thank Dawn and the Tharston Meadow sales team enough for their help and support. All we’ve ever wanted is to build a perfect life, so the perfect home had to come first. With Dawn’s help we had moved into our dream home within eight weeks of getting engaged.”
The four-bedroom Midford is a spacious family home. The ground floor comprises a large kitchen-diner, with French doors leading to a private garden, a living room, cloakroom and utility room. An en suite master bedroom is found upstairs, along with two further bedrooms, a main bathroom and a versatile bedroom.
To find out more about the homes available at Tharston Meadow, visit the sales office located off Chequers Road, Tharston, Norfolk NR15 2YA, which is open 10am to 5pm Thursday to Sunday. Alternatively, contact the Sales Executives on 01508 500571.

Framlingham: Taylor Wimpey’s new
Castle Keep development in launched in April
A new housing development on the southern edge of Framlingham will welcome home hunters for the first time this month. Taylor Wimpey East Anglia will launch Castle Keep, off Fairfield Road, in late April. Two and three-bedroom homes will be available to reserve right away, with four and five-bedroom homes to follow later this year.

The Langdale Special features a bay window to the front of the dual aspect living room and has plenty of space for families to grow into.

We will have a number of other plots available to reserve, so if you’re interested in being a part of Framlingham’s newest development then give our sales team a call today.”
Planning permission for Castle Keep was granted in 2016 and Taylor Wimpey started work on site in July 2017. In total 163 new homes are due to be built, with work currently expected to finish in 2021.
As well as bringing new homes – including affordable housing – to the Framlingham property market, Castle Keep will help the town through planning obligations which will ensure funding is put towards local infrastructure. Education, fire and rescue, health services and highways will all benefit from the development. Further funding will come from the New Homes Bonus, which is a grant paid by central government to local councils. Based on 163 homes, funds in the region of £1.14m will be generated for Suffolk Coastal District Council.
Castle Keep is on the southern edge of Framlingham, less than half a mile from the historic town centre with its 12th century castle and mix of traditional shops, pubs and cafes. There are several schools within a mile and a half of the new homes including Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham’s CEVAP School, which was rated ‘good’ in Ofsted’s latest report in January 2018. The town is well connected by road with the A12 just five miles away by car, and Wickham Market railway station is six miles away for services to London Liverpool Street via Ipswich. Direct trains to Lowestoft mean the Suffolk coast is within easy reach.
