Neighbourhood Development Plan 

The next meeting of the NDP steering group is on Monday 15th April. The agenda is here.

Consultation on the Preferred Options document is now complete and the document has been revised in the light of the feedback received. Thank you to everyone who responded and enabled the plan to be improved to better reflect what residents want to see in it. See Preferred Options Consultation for more details. We are now preparing for the next stage, known as Regulation 14 and this latest draft of the plan, - not yet complete - is being assessed over the next few weeks by the NDP team at Herefordshire Council after which the Parish Council will decide if it is ready to proceed to the formal Regulation 14 consultation - see Regulation 14 Stage for more details.

Broadband situation - slipping badly
The Fastershire stage 3 deployment plans for this area seem to be receding into the distance. This stage provides superfast broadband for most properties that are not already covered by the previous stages (Church Road, Green farm Lane, A465 from Goosepool area towards Locks).

Following delays in deployment in Herefordshire by the contractor Gigaclear, Fastershire have asked for a new and more realistic deployment plan which they anticipate publishing in December - now delayed until March 2019. We need to see this new plan, to be sure of what we are facing, but the signs are not good.

There is an update on the current situation of the Fastershire website at Stage 3 gigaclear update which also states that in the new deployment plan some areas may see deployment sooner than previously shown and some later.

For more details of the service and a presentation go to the broadband section.
