The Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Group Statement: View here

X


Henry Boot PLC and its Group Companies welcome the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the "Act").

The aim of the Act is in line with our own Values and we applaud any measures which seek to bring about greater transparency and scrutiny into our various supply chains, in order to combat slavery and trafficking activities. In accordance with the legislation, we are now looking to produce our Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement (the "Statement"), taking into account the introduction of various measures throughout our supply chain management which will be most effective at reducing the risk of slavery and trafficking activities being present within our business operations.

As our financial year end was 31st December 2015 we are not obliged to publish our Statement for the 2015 financial year, but we shall publish our Statement and details of the measures we will be introducing throughout 2016, well in advance of the legislative deadline.

We look forward to working with our partners, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders to bring any necessary changes into effect, and then to review their effectiveness and consider any changes or additional measures which such a review highlights.

About Us

Hallam Land Management Limited (Hallam) is the strategic land and planning promotion arm of the Henry Boot Group of Companies.

Our business strategy is to create new land development opportunities and to maximise the value of land for our partners and shareholders.

Our role is to promote and develop land opportunities through the complexities of the UK Town and Planning system. Hallam's strategic land and promotion expertise serves to work with the local planning authorities in helping landowners who are seeking to develop or promote land through the system. The complexity and costs of promoting sites through the planning process continue to increase. The risks and uncertainties are also increasing and so it is more important than ever that landowners select partners to assist in promoting their land with extreme care.

We are very proud of our successful track record in successfully developing both difficult and challenging sites. This assures landowners that we have the right credentials to be given significant responsibility of managing land through ownership, option or planning promotion agreement.

Hallam has been acquiring, promoting, developing and trading in strategic land since 1990 and we operate throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Hallam has experienced land and planning teams based in Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester and Northampton, as well as the Sheffield head office, working with landowners, developers, local authorities, communities and other parties to bring forward development opportunities.

Hallam currently has interests in around 11,000 acres of strategic land on more than 150 sites through ownership, option and planning promotion agreements.

We are pleased to have acted for Hallam for over 12 years and value them as clients with whom we work particularly closely. Throughout our association with them, we have been struck by their integrity and the straightforward way that they go about their business. They have the resources to deliver on what they promise – as demonstrated by their financial strength and their undoubted and proven expertise. The key message from our perspective is integrity, fairness in business dealings and expertise

Over the last seven years we have assisted Hallam in securing planning permissions for a number of major housing and employment projects. Each permission has been achieved in the context of significant planning obstacles, in itself evidence of Hallam’s ambition and success. They are respectful of professional advice but not afraid to challenge it, drawing upon their own longstanding experience. The company’s high levels of development activity mean that their personnel are always well-informed and up to date which makes for good debate and speedy decision making.

Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners - Planning Consultants

We at New College, Oxford were delighted that the sale of Longford Park, Banbury completed to three national house builders. That disposal continued the nearly 20 year relationship that the College has had with Hallam, which started with the successful promotion of Weedon Hill, Aylesbury. We are pleased to commend the considerable efforts made by Hallam and its staff over the last two decades: the consistency of approach and regular comprehensive reports as to progress have been particularly welcome. We look forward to continuing, and building on the relationship, over the next decade (and more!).

The Bursary, New College, Oxford - Landowner

 

Our involvement with Hallam started over 10 years ago and we work with them on a range of property and planning issues. Over that period they have developed a name as an important player in the property market in Scotland, seeking to develop a challenging range of sites. Their thorough approach and their desire to foster a genuine ‘team spirit’ amongst all advisers has ensured that they have been able to reach successful conclusions in respect of a number of sites which others would simply have failed to do. The size of the company ensures that all projects have a proper degree of client leadership, involvement, guidance and scrutiny. We have enjoyed working with them and the other professionals as part of a team and we look forward to continuing doing so in the future.

Biggart Bailiie - Solicitors

We have had three separate sites promoted by Hallam, for different uses, at different times and with very different circumstances. They have been successful in obtaining planning permission on each occasion. Over a twenty year period that we have worked with Hallam we have always been very pleased with the outcome and they have kept us well informed of progress every step of the way. It has been, for us, a most rewarding relationship.

George Hine - Landowner

Thanks and congratulations for the successful outcome from the planning process on the land at Weddington, Nuneaton. This success is due to the measured, intelligent, thoroughly professional and when required, tenacious approach which Hallam have always shown. The attention to detail coupled with the wealth of knowledge in respect of planning matters, was certainly more than a match for the considerable obstacles faced. The professional and technical help called upon during the process has been faultless and has effectively crossed every ‘t’ and dotted every ’I’. I wanted to identify a company with a strict adherence to a veritable moral code and Hallam came with the highest recommendation. I very much look forward to further success in the future.

Brindley Family Trust - Landowner

We have known Hallam as both adversary and client in the planning appeals process for over 20 years. For most developer clients running a planning appeal is a ‘distress purchase’. For Hallam their consummate skills based on long experience enables them to fully engage in the risk management process of the appeal system. The best endorsement we can offer is that when a long standing owner client needed to team up with a developer, I had no hesitation in recommending Hallam as their development partner.

Walker Morris - Solicitors

Hallam are a special client and we greatly appreciate the way you combine a commercial approach with a high degree of loyalty to those working with you. We have seen Hallam grow into a major player north of the border. We like to feel we have contributed to their success and they have been generous enough to acknowledge this on a number of occasions. We thrive on the trust which has been invested in us and we value their loyalty in a work environment where, inevitably, success is not always deliverable.

Robinson Associates - Planning Consultants

We have enjoyed working with Hallam over the last seven years and very much value our relationship with them. Hallam have a clear sense of purpose and direction; their instructions to us are concise and clear; they work to reasonable timescales and do not declare emergencies except when genuine; the work is challenging and never dull; they are a pleasure to act for! We look forward to continuing to work with them.

Clark Holt - Solicitors

FPCR have been working with Hallam since the early 1990s, dealing with a very varied range of masterplanning proposals across the UK. Inevitably, there have been times when stress levels have been pretty high – the vagaries of our planning system ensure that! However, the Hallam team always manages to keep things in perspective, and it is a genuine pleasure to work with different regional offices. Large scale projects are particularly satisfying, and it has been very rewarding to see sites such as Weedon Hill in Aylesbury, Cawston in Rugby and North East Bridgwater come to fruition on the ground, respecting the original masterplan aspirations. We look forward to progressing recent successful consents at Stratford and Lubbershorpe too.

FPCR Environment and Design Limited - Landscape Architects

We have worked as legal advisors alongside Hallam Land since its formation in 1990 .Over the years we have seen them apply their extensive experience and expertise in promoting land for development dealing with a variety of issues and deftly balancing the various often conflicting interests in complicated projects. Hallam Land tend to take a pragmatic approach to solving some complex legal issues and as such are able to offer more practical solutions than might otherwise be the case . At the end of the day Hallam Land adds value and more often than not deliver a successful outcome.
