YORKSHIRE Housing has said it is continuing with its development of 106 new homes in Skipton, but is continually reviewing Government guidelines on coronavirus.

The housing association is at the early stages of its two phase development off Burnside and Carlton Road and says its contractor Temrin Construction Ltd is following social distancing procedures to make sure everyone is kept safe.

The team has also donated boxes of face masks and Latex gloves to Airedale Hospital, Steeton.

A spokesperson for Yorkshire Housing said: “Yorkshire Housing and our contractor, Termrin Construction can confirm work continues on site in line with Government advice and guidelines.

“The project is at an early stage and all works taking place are external and out in the open air. Termrin Construction have implemented procedures to ensure that social distancing is maintained at all times across the site. Additional cleaning protocols are in place and all personnel on site have been given toolbox talks on the key steps they should follow to prevent spread of COVID-19.

“Due to the changing nature of the situation, Termrin Construction, as employers, are continually reviewing Government guidelines and are ready to adapt our policy and procedures to any changes that they or the Government put in place.

“We can also confirm that Termrin’s site team at Carlton Road have donated boxes of face masks and Latex gloves to the local hospital.”
