Privacy and You

Your privacy is important to you, and to us. This page lets you know what personal information we use, and why. We only use your personal information in the ways we describe here.

Find out more about how we use the information you provide:


If you register your interest in one of our developments or make any enquiry with us (directly, on our website, or through an estate agent), we use the information you supply:

  • to understand the type of home you are interested in, and your requirements;

  • send you further information about that development, like brochures, viewing opportunities, and the completion of new phases;

  • respond to your enquiry.

You only need to let us have your name and email address. If you provide us with additional information (for example, whether you need a mortgage), we may anonymise it, so we can use it for internal statistical and market research purposes. If you provide your phone number, we may call you to understand your needs further, and let you know of viewings.

On our website, you may have also asked us to provide you with information on similar developments. If you did, we’ll send you marketing information about other developments we launch.

If you no longer want us to send you information or contact you, just let us know by clicking unsubscribe on any of our emails, or by emailing
