The construction sites in Poundbury have been closed for the past four weeks following the immediate action taken by the Government to meet the threat of Covid 19.

The Government directive has always been that construction should continue as an activity when carried out with social distancing measures in place. Detailed industry guidance from the Construction Leadership Council has now been made available and has been carefully considered with regard to Poundbury.

You will therefore see, from 27th April, a gradual recommencing of works on the construction sites around Poundbury, in line with Government policy and industry guidance.

The Duchy of Cornwall has been assured by the Developers that they will be operating a robust management and monitoring system of working procedures, and will work with them to address any concerns that are raised.
