Barratt Homes warns children about site safety

As the school summer holidays get underway South Wales housebuilder Barratt Homes is warning children to stay away from its building sites. Te five star housebuilder says new home developments under construction may look like fun and exciting places to play, but they also pose serious dangers. Barratt Homes is currently working on new homes across South Wales including at Scholars Park in Dinas Powys, Sycamore Chase in Boverton, St Michael’s Gate in Llantarnam and Cwm Celyn in Tonna. Construction director Jon Twamley said: “Building sites are full of potential dangers and, as the school summer holidays are here, it is important to remind children and their parents of the need to stay away from them. “Youngsters are oſten on the lookout for somewhere new and exciting to play, but construction sites are not adventure playgrounds. While our construction teams watch out for youngsters during the day and we secure our sites at night, we also ask parents to make sure they know where their children are during the holiday time.” Barratt Homes holds regular safety talks and site visits for schools close to where it is building, to highlight the hazards of playing on or near building sites. To mark the start of the summer holidays it has compiled its top five dangers on a construction site, information which forms part of site safety talks in schools. Tings may fall on you You may fall into things such as holes in the ground You might be hit by machines You may fall or trip over something You could get trapped in pipes or drains “It’s important to get youngsters thinking about the dangers that exist to emphasise the message they should stay away from building sites,” Jon added.


Construction work has started on a new housing development in Newport, ahead of its official launch this summer.

Bellway is building 152 new homes at Heron’s Mead – a development of two, three and four- bedroom properties, off Queensway. This is the second phase of homes Bellway is building in Newport, following on from its popular Monks Meadow development next door.

Billie Oaten, Sales Director for Bellway Wales, said: “We are really pleased that building work has commenced at Heron’s Mead, and we look forward to launching the development later this summer. “There is a growing demand for new homes in Newport and our Heron’s Mead development will help to meet this need.

“The new properties have been carefully New Homes Wales and the South West

designed to cater for people at all stages of the property ladder, from first-time buyers and downsizers to growing families. “We are expecting a great deal of interest in the new homes at Heron’s Mead, so I would encourage anyone interested
