Hallam Land Management Limited, the strategic land subsidiary of Henry Boot PLC, has submitted an outline planning application for up to 245 dwellings, with a mix of house types and sizes, including affordable housing.
The new development site west of Rockfield Road and north of Rockfield Road estate covers 7.37 hectares, of which 6.10 hectares would be developed. This new planning application is intended to deliver housing for Monmouth and to sort out local flooding problems in the Over Monnow area, and has been submitted to Monmouthshire County Council. The proposals cover sites included in two earlier planning applications. The new application has been brought forward as an alternative to both earlier applications and as a solution to concerns raised by Monmouth Town Council, the County Council and nearby residents. “We looked hard at the two key issues affecting our earlier application and that of the neighbouring site at Croft-y-Bwla – access and drainage,” said Nick Duckworth, Director of Hallam Land Management. “One combined site has the capacity to deliver an all-round better development. Separate applications would mean two access roads. Of great concern to local residents, access to some 100 houses would be through the recent residential development, opening up St Vincents Drive. This new application avoids that problem by providing one access road directly off Rockfield Road. “And the long-standing problem of local flooding, which affected some residents of Rockfield Road estate last September, would be alleviated by re-directing the flood flow and providing improved sustainable drainage measures within the new larger development site. We also have enough land to set aside for green corridors, wildlife and footpaths.”
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.”
