ARTICLE · By Timber Trade Federation · 02 October 2020

The Construction Leadership Council has published an open letter in response to the latest lockdown in England.

It is encouraging that the government has recognised the need for all of the construction industry, including the manufacturers and suppliers of products, to remain open for business and continue supporting projects up and down the country.

These projects, ranging from critical infrastructure to home repairs, will be key to enabling the wider economy and individual livelihoods through this difficult period.  All the while, ensuring that these activities are done safely, from the factory floor to the site.

To find out more about what the ‘New National Restrictions‘ from 5 November will mean for England, please find linked the most recent advice on Gov.UK, where you can also view the further economic support which was announced – including the extension of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

The TTF will continue to work across the industry to provide the expertise and resources necessary for our members to navigate this latest challenge.
