Social distancing rules will be relaxed to ‘1m plus’ from 4 July, which could make it easier for self builders and renovators to complete their projects. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson made the announcement in the House of Commons on Tuesday afternoon as the government continued to ease restrictions of the coronavirus lockdown.
