Landowners and agents
Orbit is a residential developer that builds and sells homes, and we acquire land direct from vendors and agents.
Our dedicated land buying and planning team ensures we make the most of every opportunity, from the very early stages through to difficult planning processes and site development.
We are always looking for new opportunities to purchase land from owners and agents, and are keen to build long-term relationships with you.
Through strong working relationships we can effectively manage the design and build to deliver efficient and timely projects, with maximum value for money. We encourage the opportunity to share risk and reward in our partnerships with you.
- Opportunities to sell us your land – we need more land to meet our ambitious development aspirations, and are in a strong financial position to do so.

- Long-term strategic land promotion – we can work in partnership with you to drive and deliver the best results for all parties.
As part of one of the largest housing providers in the country, we understand and recognise your needs. We have a wealth of housing development and management experience and have worked with a number of providers.
Delivering your development programme can be resource-hungry and complex – Orbit has the experience and resources to provide the services you need.

We are committed to delivering high-quality homes, and have successfully worked with many national developers to collaborate on new build opportunities.
We can work with you in a number of ways including purchasing Section 106 units on a development as part of an upfront agreement for large scale/long term sites, or taking a joint venture approach to deliver a project.
We have completed joint ventures with a wide range of public and private organisations to achieve maximum benefit, and encourage the opportunity to share risk and reward in all our partnerships.
- Affordable homes – we can buy and manage affordable homes on your development, and can also support your planning and negation for the site.
- Joint venture partnerships – we can work with you to deliver a mixed-tenure scheme, forming a special-purpose vehicle or simply purchasing serviced land plots.

Orbit has a range of experience working and engaging with local authorities to deliver affordable housing. We can offer a number of services to bring your plans to fruition, and assist you in delivering your own new build housing options.
We retain a long-term interest in all of our developments and look to forge long-lasting relationships with local stakeholders. Orbit is committed to building not just properties, but communities, and our social purpose means that our profits are reinvested into supporting and improving the communities in which we develop.
- Independent living with care development – we can design and build independent living with care developments on your behalf. Depending on your requirements, we can also manage the scheme.
