Custom Build in Shropshire

This is a great opportunity to build a home to suit you in Shropshire.

Bishops Castle is a popular and vibrant market town with a fantastic mix of independent shops, restaurants, museums, cafes, pubs and micro-breweries on the doorstep. And all of this surrounded by the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Leys is a development of nine serviced plots for custom build homes, with seven of the nine plots sold and underway. The plots come with a design which already has planning consent, but it is possible to take these designs, alter them inside and out, or follow the design code to create the bespoke home to suit you. The two remaining plots have consent for a bungalow and a five bedroom house. The homes have all been designed to be built to very high sustainability standards.

Plot Layout of The Leys

Each plot has a house design which has detailed planning consent. Therefore if you like that design, and only want to make internal alterations, you can get going on your project straight away.

Other alterations to the designs, or replacement of the design with a new one, will require a discussion with planners to a lesser or greater degree. We have found this to be quite straightforward, with plot purchasers on the site already with planning permission on their new house designs.

The site follows a Design Code produced by Czero Home which will provide coherence to the overall look and feel of The Leys. The house plot remaining has a west facing gardens looking out over open countryside while the bungalow plot has a south facing gardens with a little stream at the bottom of the garden.

All Plots on The Leys Have Now Been Reserved

As of May 2019, all plots on The Leys development in Bishops Castle, have been reserved.


The Latest from Site at The Leys

The site infrastructure has been taken to the stage at which individual properties can be built, so the road, pavements and services are in place ready to connect to the individual plots. The final touches to the development, including the street lighting and finishing the road/pavement surfaces will go in once most of the houses on the site have been built.

As of the start of April there are currently two plot purchasers building on site, well on their way to completing their homes very soon. Remaining plot purchasers are due to start their build projects on site in the coming months. 

Below are a selection of some of the latest photos from site and selection of drone photos taken in the summer.


The Design Code

If you were to purchase a plot on The Leys and wish to have a new or modified house design on your plot, it will need to comply with site wide design code.
