Developer reminds Children where not to ‘Site’ see this summer

Now the school summer holidays are upon us and as the rate of housebuilding continues to increase, Barratt Homes North Thames is warning youngsters in Buckinghamshire about the dangers of playing on building sites.

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

Ilir Gjini, Construction Director at Barratt Homes North Thames, 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, and with the school summer holidays approaching, children should be told to stay away.

“While we do watch out for youngsters during the day and secure our sites 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 Homes hosts site visits and holds regular safety talks for schools close to wherever it is building new homes to encourage site safety and highlight the hazards of playing on or near construction sites.

Barratt Homes North Thames is currently building homes at Kingsbrook in Aylesbury and St Rumbolds Fields in Buckingham.
