HOUSEBUILDER Taylor Wimpey are reopening their sales office and show homes from Monday.

The company, which is building 116 new homes at Meadowlands, off Aberdour Road in Dunfermline, and 295 at Spencerfield in Inverkeithing, was one of the first to shut down operations when the pandemic hit.

A phased return to construction is already under way, with revised health and safety practices in place, and Taylor Wimpey are now making it easier for prospective housebuyers.

Kirsty McGill, sales and marketing director, said: “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 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 to our developments once again."

New measures include perspex screens and marker guides for social distancing, show home viewings will be unaccompanied and for a maximum of two customers from the same household at a time.

For those who don't wish to visit in person, sales teams will continue to offer remote appointments and video calls.

Taylor Wimpey also have permission for 1,400 homes and a primary school on land between Halbeath and Kingseat but work has not started as a legal agreement has still to be reached.
