Plans submitted for Montagu Industrial Estate redevelopment

A planning application this week has been submitted for Phase One of the Montagu Industrial Estate redevelopment in Enfield, North London.

Phase One works, if granted planning permission, will kick-start regeneration plans for the whole 27-acre estate, delivered in a joint venture between the landowner, Enfield Council, and Henry Boot Developments (HBD). It will significantly enhance the built environment along Montagu Road, being the most prominent site on the estate.

The first phase is expected to begin in Q2 2020, subject to planning permission being granted. It will provide a multi-let scheme totaling 55,353 sq ft made up of eight high-quality, modern industrial, warehouse units with associated offices. The units will range in size from 3,562-8,374 sq ft with the flexibility to combine units to meet occupier needs. The premises are an ideal size for local SMEs.

The cleared site covers 2.45 acres and has already seen the demolition of Unecol House, which was dilapidated and had stood empty for many years.

Harry Bunbury, Senior Development Surveyor at HBD London, said: “We are pleased to be working alongside the landowner Enfield Council, to complete the redevelopment of Montagu Estate, and look forward to getting started on site once planning permission has been granted.

“The first phase will help kick start the regeneration of the 27-acre site and will provide modern, high-quality industrial premises and business space to support small companies.

“Future phases will include larger units which will allow businesses to grow, contributing to a thriving industrial estate and in turn strengthening the local economy in Enfield. If granted, it will also offer significant improvement to the local environment, socially, aesthetically and environmentally.”

Part of the Henry Boot Group of Companies, HBD is one of the UK’s most active property developers, with offices in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Glasgow. It has a strong track record in partnering with local authorities on the successful delivery of employment sites, including Markham Vale, its flagship industrial scheme in Derbyshire. HBD’s London team has several such projects currently underway, including Airport Business Park in Southend and Butterfield Business Park in Luton.

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.
