Whiteleaf Consulting

Whiteleaf Consulting Limited (WCL) was established in 2010 by Chris Hill FRICS, following a distinguished career at several development companies, primarily as MD of both Westbury Homes (Southern) and CEO of Saxon Developments (both of which businesses Chris first established).

Chris is a highly respected Chartered Surveyor with some 30 years’ experience in the development industry, specifically in the residential market, both operationally and as a consultant.

Through WCL, Chris provides a professional and responsive service to his clients’ needs. The key objective is always to meet clients’ needs by getting results and providing value for money. This leads to a significant level of new instructions from regular clients and from new clients by recommendation.


WCL’s key services:

  • Strategic Landowner Agreement Advice
    (Options, Promotion, Hybrid, Overage, etc)
  • Option Exercise and other Purchase Negotiations
  • Overage Negotiations
  • S106 Development Application Viability Assessments
  • Land Promotion & Plan-making Viability Assessments
  • CPO advice and negotiations
  • General Estate Management
  • Due Diligence and opportunity appraisals

Working with DJA

In 2018, after a long relationship working on a number of development projects, Chris entered into a joint working arrangement with David Jarvis Associates (DJA), a successful and experienced planning, development and landscape consultancy.

It is this link that has provided WCL with the additional resource of another experienced Chartered Surveyor, Andrew Short MRICS. In addition to his own residential and CPO experience, Andrew also brings his knowledge of specialist minerals and waste developments into the WCL team.

The association between WCL and DJA enables both companies to benefit mutually from each other’s extensive experience in their respective fields.
