Help-to-buy fuels Henry Boot growth

Henry Boot, the Sheffield-based land and property developer has reported steady improvement in trading this morning.

This is attributed to the Government’s help-to-buy initiative, as well as general improvement in the economy.

Total land holdings of Henry Boot now equate to 9,700 acres, projected to increase as the confidence of national house builders grows.

Barclays and Santander banks have agreed to be involved as the second phase of the Help-to-Buy scheme begins, whilst taxpayer-backed RBS and Lloyds Banking Group are already participating.

Highlights of this period for Henry Boot include recieving planning permission for leisure, residential and commerical uses for the listed former Terry’s chocolate orange factory in York, and the commencement of the Deansgate development in Manchester city centre.
