Youngsters warned not to play on building sites over the summer

YOUNGSTERS are being urged not to play on dangerous building sites during the summer holidays.

Warwickshire developer David Wilson Homes Mercia has issued the warning – continuing that whilst construction sites may look like exciting places to explore, they were actually extremely hazardous.

Managing Director Dominic Harman 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”.

David Wilson Homes hosts site visits for local children when possible, 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.
