“The health, safety and wellbeing of the public and everyone who works on our sites remain the top priority.”

Sales advisers have been given training on how keep visitors safe. Mr Eldridge added: “Our sales advisers have worked extremely hard to help existing and new customers during this difficult lockdown period and continue to be able via phone and email. Reservations and completions have, in fact, remained strong despite no face-to-face contact.

“Even so, being able to meet with house hunters, albeit at a safe distance, is an important step forward and will be a help for many people. Looking around the show homes to see the type of properties on offer is also valuable for many people. We look forward to welcoming visitors in the days and weeks to come.”

Initially sales consultations will be on a pre-booked appointment basis only.
