Our offer

Landowners and agents

Orbit is a residential developer that builds and sells homes and acquires 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.

We offer:

  • 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
  • Transparent and straight-forward land acquisitions – we offer commitment and an open approach to all of our agreements
  • Long-term strategic land promotion – we can work in partnership with you to drive and deliver the best results for all parties

Housing providers

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 offer:

  • Development services – we can provide design, planning and construction services to get your development off the ground
  • Sales and marketing – we can offer advice on your initial set-up, provide specific site or property reports, manage your sales delivery and provide bespoke consultancy services
  • Open market sales – we can construct and sell homes on your behalf, or operate as a joint venture partnership to deliver private sale homes


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. We welcome the opportunity to share risk and reward in all our partnerships.

We offer:

  • Affordable homes – we can buy and manage affordable homes on your development and support your planning and negotiation 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.
  • Investment – we can provide cash investment for your development, which could be used for site infrastructure development or to assist with scheme cash flow.

Local authorities

Orbit has wide experience of working and engaging with local authorities to deliver affordable housing. We can offer a number of services to bring your plans to life and can 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.

We offer:

  • Regeneration – making use of our vast experience, we can offer design, build and funding support, management of decant programmes, public consultation, and social and economic community development.
  • Land buying – we are always looking for new opportunities to buy land from local authorities and will work with you to ensure positive financial and social returns for both parties.
  • Independent living – we can design and build new developments on your behalf. Depending on your requirements, we can also manage the scheme.
  • Project management – we can offer design and feasibility studies, on-site monitoring and quality control, procurement channels, project management, and sales and marketing services.
