Installation for the fibre cabinets for Boxes 1 and 2 has been approved, however, this did not include the necessary authorisation to install associated cables and fibre under Crown Land / Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the Parish Council continues to press for this to be achieved as soon as possible: Pete Wales, Chairman of Brockenhurst Parish Council, has recently met New Forest District Councillors who have agreed to help expedite matters and has also arranged to meet Keith Mans, the new County Councillor for our area, to enlist his support.
The duct repair along Rhinefield Road is the first task which must be completed before the fibre can be routed to these new boxes. The work is more extensive than originally envisaged and consequently a completion date has not been given but we will update the forecast date as soon as information becomes available.
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 01590 622829 or New Forest District Council on 023 8028 5000.
Allotments Plots Available!
We have a couple of allotments available at present so if you live in the Parish and are interested in having one please contact the Parish Clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01590 622829.
