About Tilia Homes

Tilia Homes proudly builds quality new-build homes and communities across the country.

Tilia Homes was acquired in 2021 by leading private equity firm, Terra Firma. Since then, we have embarked on an exciting new chapter as an independent business, with significant investment from our new owners fuelling ambitious plans for growth.

Tilia Homes builds sustainable, well-designed, and quality homes across Central, Eastern, Northern and Western England.

We take a sensitive approach to development, engaging with local communities and striving to make a positive difference to the local areas in which we build.

Our partnership with landowners

At Tilia Homes, we pride ourselves on being a trusted partner that takes an honest, open approach and always delivers on its promises.

We work in partnership with landowners to add value to development opportunities and work closely with local authorities and communities to create the right solution for each site.

We engage with local communities through the planning process and listen to opinions and ideas. We are committed to leaving a lasting legacy and contribute millions of pounds every year to local infrastructure, education and community facilities through Section 106 agreements and the Community Infrastructure Levy. 

Our regional teams provide local knowledge and understanding and have relationships with key stakeholders. We also enhance our own expertise with a team of specialist consultants and advisers on areas such as transport, environment, ecology, archaeology, and landscaping.

95% of our planning applications receive permission locally, without the need to go to appeal.

About Tilia Homes

Tilia Homes is actively looking for new development opportunities across the areas in which we operate.

Any land opportunity will be considered in sustainable suburban locations with good transport links and access to community facilities. We have a strong track record in delivering both complex brownfield regeneration projects and sensitive greenfield developments, and will consider sites with or without the principle of planning established.

We assess every site individually and honestly and provide our best advice on the most appropriate development solution and planning strategy.

We can manage the whole process on behalf of the landowner, from bringing in the right consultant team to liaising with the relevant local authorities and statutory bodies. Our focus is always on securing the best outcome for everyone involved. 

Building sustainably

Tilia Homes recognises the importance of operating sustainably and minimising the impact of our operations on the environment. Creating sustainable communities means selecting the right sites for development that will meet the needs of both homeowners today and future generations.

We are considerate of the local environments in which we build, protecting local character, the natural environment and wildlife. Homes are designed in keeping with local architectural style and we conduct a thorough ecological assessment to fully understand the possible impact of our development proposals.

We build sustainably too, taking a fabric-first approach to energy efficiency and using modern building methods of construction. We focus on waste reduction on our sites and minimise what we send to landfill.

We also explore opportunities to incorporate renewable energy on our developments including solar panels, ground and air source heat pumps.
