Super-Fast Broadband update


We have just been informed that another dispute has arisen between BT OpenReach and the Forestry Commission resulting in the Forestry Commission withholding the issue of Wayleaves to OpenReach. This means that work cannot be started on Box 2 and the length of the work programme means that even if the dispute is resolved now, Box 2 is unlikely to be completed by the end of March. No forecast date for completion can be given in these circumstances.

We are therefore seeking the help of Dr Julian Lewis yet again to try to expedite agreement between the legal departments of the two organisations. Such a problem is extremely frustrating to us all and the Open Reach project team who have been working hard to complete the work as soon as possible.

Friends of Brockenhurst Station - Can You Help?

Following completion of major works at Brockenhurst Railway Station, the Parish Council is seeking volunteers to be "Friends of the Station" to enhance the station environment, form a more welcoming atmosphere and encourage greater community use of the railway.  Many stations throughout the country have similar organisations and train companies are actively encouraging friends groups and establishing good working relationships.  

The aims of working together are to:

  • Encourage use of the railway through a variety of regeneration and community activities;
  • Promote the station as a gateway to Brockenhurst, the New Forest and Lymington areas;
  • Improve the environmental and operational upkeep of the station; and
  • Enhance the historical heritage of the station.  

Volunteers will join an existing group of helpers to:

    • Regularly visit the station to conduct surveys;
    • Alert South Western Railway to any damage, vandalism or disrepair;
    • Suggest improvements for the overall benefit of customers using the station;
    • Assist with community event planning such as 'Music at the Station' events.
    South Western Railway will continue to manage the line and station and be responsible for its cleanliness, decorative order and repair.  Volunteers will not take on tasks currently performed by South Western Railway's staff or agents.  If you are interested in helping, please contact the Parish Clerk by email or on 622829 in the first instance.

    Flood Alleviation

    The Parish Council have been working with various bodies to achieve flood reduction by identifying watercourses and drains that are particularly prone to blockage so that their clearance can be prioritised.  In low lying areas such as Brockenhurst it is particularly important that watercourses and drains are actively managed.  

    Please see the Flooding section of our Emergency Services webpage for more information.  

    To report a faulty or blocked watercourse please phone the Parish Clerk on 622829 or New Forest District Council on 023 8028 5000.

    If you live in the Parish and are interested in having an allotment please contact the Parish Clerk by email or on 622829 to be put on the waiting list.
