About Bellway

Our homes

We build high quality homes designed to complement the style of existing local housing in developments that meet local demand and enhance the community. With a range that extends from one-bedroom apartments to six-bedroom family homes, we offer an extensive choice from which customers can choose a property that fits their particular requirements. We also provide homes to housing associations for social housing.

We are committed to being a responsible housebuilder. Our aim is to operate our business in an ethical and sustainable manner, while at the same time building attractive, desirable and sustainable developments in which customers want to live in harmony with existing communities.

Our focus is to provide desirable, traditional family housing across our divisions outside of London and to provide apartments within the London boroughs. Our activity in London is predominantly in the outer London boroughs.

Our business

We are proud of our heritage in the north east of England and of our base in Newcastle upon Tyne, where the business was founded over 70 years ago.

It is from our headquarters in Newcastle upon Tyne that we currently operate through over 22 divisions, covering the main population centres across England, Scotland and Wales.

Our divisional structure allows local management teams to respond to specific demands in their area and, through their detailed local knowledge, acquire land on which to design and build homes that meet or exceed the expectations of our customers and contribute to creating strong, local communities. The divisional teams are supported by our Regional Chairmen and by our specialist Head Office teams.

Why Bellway

We pride ourselves on understanding the aspirations of all our customers, not just in the type of home that suits their needs, but in the environment in which they want to live.

All our customers are treated with the same high level of customer service. Our high standard of service and build quality is endorsed by our customers, over 9 out of 10 customers saying they would recommend to a friend buying a new home from Bellway. Our Customer Experience Committee drives improvements to quality and works to develop and share best practice to further enhance our service to customers.

We are a 5 star home builder

An ongoing focus on high standards of customer care resulted in the Group being recognised as a five-star home builder, for the third consecutive year, in 2019.

Our people are the key to our success and we aim to provide them with a rewarding and fulfilling career.

Bellway has long had a reputation as a good employer, taking a personal interest in its workforce and supporting career development. As a result, many employees have spent a large proportion of their working lives with us. However, we are not complacent and strive to continue to be an employer of choice.

As one of the UK’s largest housebuilders, we have an important role to play in addressing the growing national housing shortage by building high quality new homes in desirable locations.

We work with a range of stakeholders to build trust that we can fulfil this role, whilst at the same time operating our business in a socially responsible, ethical and sustainable way.

We are consistently building value for shareholders.

We continue to focus on our growth strategy to help us build on our success. Providing market conditions continue to remain attractive, the Group has the operational and financial strength to further expand the divisional network, thereby supporting additional growth in the years ahead and delivering further sustainable long-term returns for shareholders.
