Scottish construction industry primed for Phase 3 of restart


SCOTLAND’S construction sector has been given the green light to move to Phase 3 of its restart plan on Monday June 22.

First minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed the news in her update regarding easing lockdown restrictions, adding that the sector will then move through the remaining phases ‘subject to ongoing consultation with government’.

Phase 3 comprises steady state operation (only where physical distancing can be maintained).

From Monday June 29, some indoor workplaces that have remain closed such as factories, labs and warehouses, can start to re-open.

In a move that will come as a relief to the housebuilding industry, restrictions on moving house will also be lifted on June 29.
