The last cabinet in central Brockenhurst (No. 2 serving the New Forest Drive general area) still awaits a final permission to install new ducts, etc.
Unfortunately, as previously stated, the Forestry Commission and BT Openreach have to agree a national procedure to apply for wayleaves. Their legal departments have been in negotiation since April on this issue and whilst the Openreach project team, Hampshire County Council and the Parish Council have been doing all they can to expedite the process, this is a national problem.
Given this unacceptable delay, the Parish Council is therefore seeking any help our local MP can give in view of the Government policy on Super Fast Broadband. Indeed, Digital Minister, Margot James, stated earlier this year that "broadband has become a modern necessity" and the Chancellor made further funding available only last month, however, no progress will be made until a resolution can be found.
