At Mosborough in Sheffield, Hallam purchased a large employment site, and following the relocation of the local sewage treatment works we have promoted a mixed use development that includes a Morrisons superstore, Arnold Laver’s national production plant and 450 houses.
A 130 acre site at Blackpool was also successfully promoted through two local plans and the developments on the site have provided many local people with employment at the large B&Q, hotel, pub, car showrooms and offices.
In Scotland we promoted a 23 acre site at Macmerry for employment use and this was purchased by the local authority following grant of planning permission. The site is now fully developed and occupied.
We also secured planning permission for 750,000 sq ft of commercial space at Bridgwater, including in excess of 650,000 sq ft of storage and distribution space which has now been acquired and built out by Wm Morrison Supermarkets plc. Mulberry Handbags have also developed a manufacturing plant on the site. Meanwhile Hallam have constructed 2kms of road including a bridge over the Bristol/Plymouth main line railway and a Primary School (to serve the 1,000 new homes).
More recently at Faversham, Kent, we have secured planning consent for 310 dwellings (now contracted to Barratt) and 215,000 sq ft of employment uses including a 100 bed hotel, a 60 bed care home and 2,100 sq ft of retail.
Hallam Land Management is a part of the Henry Boot Group of Companies.
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.”
