About us

Founded in 1897 and now led by the third and fourth generation of the family, Wates is one of the largest privately-owned construction, development and property services companies in the UK. Our work demonstrates the longevity and commitment of a family business.

As specialists in land, planning and residential development, Wates Developments has extensive experience of providing high-quality new homes throughout southern England.

We work closely with local communities to ensure our developments are sensitive to their locations and stitch seamlessly into existing neighbourhoods.

Our vision is to become the most trusted partner in the built environment. We are dedicated to leaving a positive legacy for the communities in which we work and live.
