Hallam Land Management, the strategic land arm of the Henry Boot Group, and Bloor Homes have submitted an outline planning application on land to the west of Shottery, Stratford-upon-Avon for up to 800 new homes with the provision of a new local centre, primary school and associated infrastructure including the construction of the Stratford Western Relief Road linking A422/A46 Wildmoor roundabout to the Evesham Road.
The submission follows the site’s allocation as a Strategic Reserve Site in the current Stratford-upon-Avon Local Plan and its identification in the emerging Core Strategy for the District. The applicants held a Public Exhibition for local residents in September 2008 and the scheme submitted responds to many of the concerns raised at that time. Ruth McKeown, Regional Manager for Hallam Land Management commented, “We look forward to progressing the application with the District Council which we consider will deliver a wide range of benefits including the provision of much needed affordable housing for local people.”
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.”
