Hallam Land Management Limited, the strategic land subsidiary of the Henry Boot plc, have submitted a planning application to Selby District Council seeking planning approval for five wind turbines on land at Cleek Hall, Cliffe, east of Selby, North Yorkshire.
An Environmental Impact Assessment has been undertaken and an Environmental Statement prepared and submitted in support of the planning application. The proposal is to construct five wind turbines each with an installed capacity of up to 2.5 Megawatts giving a total installed capacity for the scheme of up to 12.5 Megawatts. The application also includes for the provision of ancillary equipment and access roads. Each wind turbine would have a hub height of up to 80 metres and an overall height of up to 127 metres. The annual production of electricity from the development is predicted to be between 25,000 Megawatt Hours and 30,000 Megawatt Hours which is equivalent to the annual electricity requirements of approximately 5,000 to 6,000 dwellings. Dillon Butters, Regional Manager of Hallam Land Management comments, “This planning application represents an ideal opportunity to meet the government’s objective of bringing forward additional sources of renewable energy generation. The proposed scheme would also make a meaningful contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions as part of the national and global efforts to fight climate change.”
Hallam Land Management is a part of the Henry Boot Group of Companies.

“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.”
