BARRATT Homes is to restart physical appointments at its sites from Monday as it resumes its build programme across Scotland.

The company - one of the first major housebuilders to close its developments in response to the coronavirus pandemic at the end of March - began readying its developments at the end of May in line with the Scottish Government’s safe operating industry guidelines and initiated a soft start on June 15.

Since then, its sales team supported customers on telephone calls and a new video appointment system offering live video tours of sites and show homes.

The housebuilder said that from June 29 customers will be able to book physical appointments through its website and enquiry line.

However, the company will continue offering the option of live video tours for those who do not wish to or cannot visit its developments.

Doug McLeod, Barratt managing director, said: “We will continue to consult with the Government every step of the way so that we are aligned with its route map through and out of the crisis.”

It said sales have been strong since its soft start.
