St Modwen Homes, in Locking Parklands, will host the event on March 20 from 9am-3pm.

The programme by Build UK in partnership with Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) offers a chance for the public to go behind the scenes of live construction sites, offices, factories and training centres.

St Modwen Homes managing director Dave Smith said: "We are delighted to be involved in Open Doors 2020 and are particularly excited to open our Locking Parklands development to the wider public of Locking and the surrounding areas.

"The event offers a great platform for us to showcase the hard work that goes into building houses and their surrounding communities."
