Hallam Land Management, the strategic land arm of the Henry Boot Group, have submitted an outline planning application to Aylesbury Vale District Council relating to 31.52 hectares of land to south of the A421 and east of the A413 in Buckingham.
The application was validated on 30th September 2008 and proposes a sustainable mixed-use urban extension described by the Local Authority as “Comprehensive development of land comprising of 700 new dwellings including affordable housing, primary school, employment land, healthcare, outdoor play space, changing pavilion, landscaping and creation of drainage detention basin and highway, cycle and pedestrian provision”. The proposal would provide a high quality and broad mix of affordable and market housing with public transport, walking and cycling access to local facilities and employment areas, complemented by the employment, recreational and health facilities proposed on site. The primary school on-site and highway improvements off-site would help to ensure that the local infrastructure can manage the needs of the resulting development and local area. The plans for the new properties are likely to go before the Council`s planning committee in early 2009. Nick Duckworth, Regional Director, commented “The proposal provides for much needed affordable housing as well as housing required for population growth within targets set by Central Government. We aim to ensure that the development will be a well designed and beneficial addition to Buckingham as a whole”.
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.”
