Waitrose

Warminster

  • 1.75 acre site on the edge of the town centre with 28,000 sq ft of retail space
  • 23,000 sq ft pre-let to Waitrose
  • Retail units let to Barnardo’s and Pets Corner
  • Relocation and construction of bespoke 45,000 sq ft facility for historic glove maker, Dents

Henry Boot Developments assembled this 1.75 acre town centre site, from three different land owners. The majority of the site was owned by Dents glove manufacturers and as part of the purchase agreement HBDL designed and built a new 45,000 sq ft head office/warehouse/production facility for them on Warminster Business Park.

Detailed planning was achieved (despite an officer recommendation for refusal) for the development of a 23,000 sq ft Waitrose foodstore, together with an additional 6,000 sq ft of retail in three units, with completed lettings to Pets Corner and Barnardos.

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.
