Leaper is a land promoter with a difference, promoting custom and self-build schemes in rural locations across the UK.

We believe in responsible development and working with landowners and existing communities to create great homes and places with a positive and long-lasting legacy.

Creating great homes and places

Above all, we aim to create high-quality and sustainable homes and places. We believe that good and popular development can be achieved with a responsible, design-led approach and through effective community engagement. We work with the best designers and seek to involve everyone in the process, from existing communities and new residents through to the local planning authority.

Custom and self-build

We specialise in promoting custom and self-build developments as we believe this achieves higher quality and more sustainable homes. Design and appearance is controlled through a design code, giving certaintly to the landowner and all stakeholders that the development will be delivered to the highest standard. The process represents better value for money for the homeowner, also empowering them to create a home which better suits their needs, and offers the potential for landowners to generate greater returns. Custom build is also demand-led so speculative homes won’t be built that aren’t needed or don’t suit local demand.

A legacy approach

We work in partnership with landowners who want to guarantee the best for their local community and who wish to retain long-term involvement because they aspire to create a legacy. Also, unlike many land promoters, our role does not end once planning permission has been granted, we take on an enabling role and install shared landscaping, services and infrastructure. We think this legacy approach to development demonstrates an integrity and commitment from all parties to create great places which mature over time and are managed accordingly.

An expert team

We work with award-winning designers, leading custom and self-build experts, and pre-eminent planners who specialise in rural development and who have an unrivalled track record in achieving planning consents in sensitive areas. Key to our success is building relationships with all stakeholders throughout the process. We have experience of working with numerous local authorities throughout the UK.
