Hallam Land Management the strategic land subsidiary of Henry Boot plc, having successfully won on appeal the planning consent in February 2008 for a 40 bed care home, 45 extra care apartments, key worker accommodation and 65 aged restricted houses,
have now submitted an outline planning application for 150 new homes on a further 4.8 hectares of land on King Harry Lane in St Albans. The proposed site is within the city boundary, close to local services and facilities and has been identified in the Council’s Core Strategy Issues and Options paper as a site suitable for development. The homes will range from a mixed styling of 2 bedroom to 5 bedroom properties of which 35% are to be designated affordable housing. As part of the application improvements will be made to local highways in particular addressing peak hour congestion on King Harry Lane itself and contributions to nursery, primary and secondary education, library facilities, local parks, children’s play areas and sporting facilities. Ruth McKeown, Regional Manager for Hallam Land Management commented “This proposal in St Albans provides for much needed affordable housing as well as housing required for population growth within targets set by Central Government.”
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.”
