Hallam Land Management

How it Works

Hallam understands that land plays the most vital role in every aspect of property development. Land is a vital component for developers and house builders seeking to deliver village and town extensions to building new communities. It is also often a family asset which has been passed through many generations.

Hallam has built an enviable reputation for successfully fusing these components together over three decades delivering:

  • Small bespoke housing schemes
  • Wind farms
  • Motorway service areas
  • Mixed use communities
  • Business parks
  • Whole new towns (with new associated infrastructure, including bypasses, railway stations, secondary and primary schools)

We are one of the industries most experienced land promoters, with proven success and the ability to innovate and adapt.

How Do We Work
We place a strong emphasis on working with our landowners to achieve the optimum result. Each site, we see as a blank canvas from which we create a bespoke masterplan, maximising opportunities. We sensitively address constraints and work through the planning system, with the end goal of optimising value.

Each region has a dedicated team of experienced planners and surveyors who normally stay with each project. One of the team will be your point of contact for the whole of the process, through to the sale of the consented property. During the project we will ensure contact is maintained to discuss progress and answer any queries which arise.

Our approach is flexible, and often our schemes can accommodate the retention of buildings or land, and we are able to work with existing businesses to ensure their requirements are met. We appreciate each site is different, but our ability to listen to your needs will make sure things come together.

What Can We Offer You
We act as the catalyst to optimise a sites potential, no matter whether it’s a short, medium or a long term prospect, taking it through the changing and complex system of planning. We have done this for many years, which is where we add value through our understanding and knowledge.

All the work we do is at our financial risk, and from the outset we listen to what your needs are. We will be flexible and offer a range of structures which can be tailored to you. Normal routes can be through a planning promotion agreement (where we promote land on the owner’s behalf and then sell into the open market), option agreement (where we promote land and once consented seek to buy it from the owner), an outright purchase of your land, or even buying the freehold of existing options sites, with the possibility of an overage.

We will offer an upfront fee and carry all the initial costs needed specific to your site. This includes legal agreement fees, the promotion costs through the planning process and even the costs included in selling the land. We only see a share in returns when the site has been acquired for development.

We recognise people like to have their own teams involved at the first stages, and we are happy to have discussions with existing groups of advisors.

So please get in touch with any of our team within your region on the ‘contact us’ page for a confidential discussion about your land. We can make a very quick assessment of your lands potential and listen to what your needs might be, so we can ensure an initial offer can be progressed speedily.

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.”
