Planning, Land & Development


Woodruff & Co Property Consultants provide a pro-active approach to Town and Country Planning taking a positive attitude to obtaining planning consents by thoughtful and considered negotiations with local authorities. We often work alongside other professional consultants including architects and solicitors to achieve successful results.

We undertake many planning commissions from obtaining change of use, securing planning consents for single dwellings or large housing estates, applying for advertising consents, promoting land through the development process and successfully undertaking Planning Appeals.

At Woodruff & Co Property Consultants we believe that negotiating with local authorities is essential to secure a deliverable and successful result; we do not however subscribe to the view of always taking the easy option and are often, where justified, prepared to challenge local authorities on their views.


Woodruff & Co Property Consultants are experienced in the valuation and sale of development land and opportunities. Using powerful software tools we undertake viability and sensitivity studies on a wide range of projects from a single dwelling to a multi phased mixed use scheme. This assists in achieving the maximum potential of a development opportunity.

Our experience and contacts means that we are well positioned to sell land and development opportunities to a wide range of potential purchasers.

Our promise is to use our expertise to maximise the potential value of our clients' assets.


In addition to obtaining planning permission and disposing of development opportunities Woodruff & Co Property Consultants provide development and market appraisals for a wide range of developments.

Gone are the days when developers could try and build oversized houses in unsuitable locations. The key to a successful development in the current market is very much product and price led; we are in a position to advise our clients on the sensitivity of the current market.

Woodruff & Co Property Consultants have an extensive knowledge of the North East from Teeside to the Borders; this local knowledge is invaluable when assisting developers and land owners alike.
