Tawd Valley Developments
in the community

At Tawd Valley Developments, we don’t just strive to build the best but we are always looking for ways to support and or improve the community where our schemes are built. 
From offering careers advice and guidance in local schools and colleges, developing play areas and car parking near to our schemes as well as supporting local charities with their work, Tawd Valley Developments places a great deal of importance on adding social value to the borough of West Lancashire.  

Here are some of the ways we have supported the local community since we started our development work back in 2020.

It was good to see some positive outcomes delivered including young people offered jobs and training places with local businesses.
