Clive Wiltshire, Managing Director Of Linden Homes Western, Said:
16 Apr 2013

“We were extremely sorry to learn of the death of the pets. On being contacted by the family, our site manager immediately visited the family to discuss their concerns.

“As a responsible house builder we take health and safety very seriously, and all of the products we use conform to, and often exceed, current legislation.

“The render product used at our Midsomer Norton site is used extensively and safely throughout the construction industry. It is an odourless powder containing cement, granular materials and small quantities of additives, which is mixed with water and applied. Mixing is carried out a safe distance from the neighbouring properties.

“A member of our health and safety team has visited the site and found that there was no apparent evidence of render material or indeed general dust, on or near the boundary fence or vegetation.”
