In 2010 Redrow launched its Heritage Collection [8] followed by the Regent Collection [9] and more modern Abode Collection.[10]

In February 2017 Redrow acquired Radleigh Homes in Derby, an established company which delivered 200 new homes in 2016. It has since been re-branded to Redrow Homes (East Midlands).[11] Then, in September 2017, it was announced that Morgan would "ease back" to a non-executive chairman role with Redrow.[12]

In July 2018, prompted by growth in London and the southern counties, Redrow announced the opening of its 15th division, Thames Valley, based in Oxfordshire.[13] On 18 October 2018 Redrow announced its 100,000th customer and released statistics on the number of direct jobs it had created (36,000), including 2,000 trainees, and a further 200,000 indirect employees.[14] On 7 November 2018, it was announced that Steve Morgan would retire from the company in March 2019 with John Tutte taking over as executive chairman and Matthew Pratt as chief operating officer.[15] Tutte himself announced his retirement in 2020 with Matthew Pratt taking over as Group Chief Executive.[16]

Like most housebuilders, Redrow temporarily closed most of its sites during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom during early 2020. The site closures pushed house sales down by a third. In a trading update, Redrow said it had completed 4,032 homes up to 28 June 2020, compared to 6,443 in 2019. Turnover was expected to be £1.34bn against £2.11bn in 2019.[17]
