Buckinghamshire developers remind children where not to go “site” seeing during summer holidays

Now that the school summer holidays are underway, Barratt and David Wilson Homes are warning youngsters in Buckinghamshire about the dangers of playing on building sites.

Works taking place on a busy construction site

New homes developments under construction may look like exciting places to explore, but the developers are warning children and their parents that they can be extremely hazardous.

John Dillon, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “Developers like ourselves are building more new homes at sites all over the country, but until they are completed these places can be dangerous.

“Whilst we do watch out for youngsters during the day and secure our developments at night, we would like to ask parents to ensure the safety of their children during the holidays, especially if they live near an active building site.”

Barratt and David Wilson Homes hosts site visits for local children when possible, and hold regular safety talks for schools close to wherever they are building new homes to encourage site safety and highlight the hazards of playing on or near construction sites.

Barratt Homes is currently building properties at the following developments in Buckinghamshire: Brooklands, Eagles’ Rest, Woburn Downs and Fairfields in Milton Keynes.

David Wilson Homes is also currently building properties in Buckinghamshire at Eagles’ Rest and Woburn Downs, as well as at Lavendon Fields in Lavendon and Brooklands Park in Milton Keynes.
