Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire and North Yorkshire will begin a phased approach to reopening its sales office and show homes across the regions from next Friday.

On 22 May the company will open its development doors to customers with strict social distancing requirements in place. This follows announcements by Harron Homes, MJ Gleeson and Persimmon will also reopen their sites.

New measures include the installation of perspex screens and marker guides for social distancing. Show home viewings will be unaccompanied and only one family at a time will be able to view each home.

Customers wishing to visit a development will need to book an appointment in advance.

Ross Clarkson, sales director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, 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 the sales offices on a strict appointment-only basis.

“I am confident that our revised health and safety protocols and guidelines mean we can operate safely and I know our sales executives are looking forward to safely welcoming customers 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 home buying journey and we will continue to offer remote appointments.”
