Summer warning on the dangers 
of building sites

As the school summer holidays get under way, a local homebuilder is warning youngsters to stay safe and keep away from its development sites.

New homes developments under construction may look like fun and exciting places to play, but David Wilson Homes South Midlands is warning children that they can pose serious dangers.

“Children of all ages are often on the lookout for somewhere new and exciting to play over the summer holidays, said Mark Penn, Construction Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, “but construction sites are not adventure playgrounds.

“At this time of year it is important to remind children and parents about the potential hazards on construction sites and the need to stay well away from them.”

The developer holds regular safety talks and site visits for schools close to where it is building, to highlight the dangers of playing on or near building sites.

“We have active sites across the region,” Mark continued, “and while our construction teams watch out for children during the day and secure the sites at night, we would also ask local parents to warn their children and make sure they know where they are during the holidays.”

David Wilson Homes South Midlands is currently building quality new homes at developments across Buckinghamshire, including Windsor Park in Buckingham and Tattenhoe Park and the recently launched Brooklands in Milton Keynes
