Taylor Wimpey developments to reopen in Scotland from June 29

SCOTTISH Taylor Wimpey developments will begin a phased approach to reopening its sales offices and show homes from Monday 29 June following the latest government guidance regarding removing restrictions on non-essential home moves north of the border.

The housebuilder halted construction on sites in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions. A phased return to construction has since restarted across the UK.

From 29 June, sales offices in Scotland will be open to customers with social distancing requirements in place. Customers wishing to visit will be required to book an appointment in advance.

Taylor Wimpey confirmed a new set of protocols has been developed alongside new safety measures. These include the installation of Perspex screens and marker guides for social distancing. Show home viewings will be unaccompanied and only for a maximum of two customers from the same household will be able to view a home at the same time.

Kirsty McGill, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said, “Reopening our sales offices and show homes is a significant step for both staff and customers. I want to assure the public that we are not prepared to compromise on health and safety, which is why we will be operating our sales offices and visits to our show homes on a strict appointment-only basis.

“I am confident that our revised health and safety protocols and guidelines mean that we can operate safely, and I know our sales executives are looking forward to safely welcoming customers to our developments once again. I also understand that some customers may still prefer not to visit us in person. Our sales team has been working remotely over the past few weeks, helping customers through each stage of the homebuying journey and we will continue to offer remote appointments.

“Our experienced sales teams are available to help customers through every step of their home buying journey, and we can arrange video calls for interested buyers to find out more about the homes and incentives that we have available.”
