Hallam Land Management


12th November 2008


Hallam Land Management the strategic land subsidiary of Henry Boot plc, and the Commercial Estates Group, have received the planning green light from the Government following a four-day planning appeal for a joint owned 30 acre housing and employment development at the former Cape Asbestos Works, Durham Road, Bowburn near Durham.

The plans for the land, which has been derelict since 1993, will see extensive de-contamination works completed and ultimately 10 acres developed for employment uses and the remaining for around 250 new homes in a variety of property styles, including one third set aside for low-cost homes. Bob Brown Managing Director for Hallam Land Management commented “As part of the new scheme there will be interesting landscaping features and tree planting, a children’s play area with amenity open spaces, pedestrian and cycle routes, a percent for art provision and a wildlife haven”. Further more detailed plans will be submitted to Durham City Council in the latter part of 2008.

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Group Statement: View here


“Henry Boot PLC and its Group Companies has, following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) implemented a number of measures which seek to bring about greater transparency and scrutiny into our various supply chains, in order to combat slavery and trafficking activities. Further to this, over the past year we have been reviewing the measures put in place and seeking to identify additional actions to strengthen our due diligence and transparency. The aim of the Act is in line with our own ‘Henry Boot Way’ Vision and Values, as updated in 2017, which include ‘Respect’, ‘Integrity’ and ‘Collaboration’, all of which are relevant to our approach in this regard.

We continue to keep under regular review our Human Trafficking and Slavery Statement (the ‘Statement’), setting out the activities undertaken to reduce the risk of slavery and trafficking activities being present within our business operations. These measures include the introduction of an Anti-Slavery Policy, due diligence requirements, and mandatory contract clauses seeking compliance by our supply chain with appropriate anti-slavery measures. Additional measures that have recently been put into place to increase knowledge and vigilance throughout our organisation and supply chain include posters and awareness cards across our sites.

We will continue to regularly work with our partners, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders, as well as keeping industry best practice under review, to monitor our approach for effectiveness, and consider any changes or additional measures as appropriate.”
