Superfast fibre broadband coming to Syresham Parish

Posted: Fri, 01 Mar 2019 16:40 by Samantha Hosking

SUPERFAST FIBRE BROADBAND

COMING SOON TO HOUSEHOLDS THROUGHOUT

SYRESHAM, CROWFIELD AND PIMLICO

As part of the central government's plans to roll out superfast broadband to UK rural areas, Gigaclear have been awarded the contract to provide superfast fibre broadband networks to rural communities in Northamptonshire. More »

Works in the parish of Syresham are delayed and are now due to start late summer. There will be some disruption while the cables are laid in narrow trenches. Some temporary footpath and road closures will be necessary during the works, which could last for approximately 8-12 weeks.

The new network will mean that most residents will have the option to access this new, faster fibre broadband.

Residents will receive letters from Gigaclear before works commence. The letters will give more information.

In the meantime there are some FAQ leaflets available either from Syresham Post Office or from the Parish Clerk. The PDF of the Frequently Asked Questions Leaflet is also on Gigaclear's website, www.gigaclear.net/wp-content/uploads/networkbuildfaqs.pdf

If residents have any additional questions please contact Gigaclear directly:

Local Government Reorganisation and Postponement of Parish Elections

Posted: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 16:06 by Samantha Hosking

Consultation by the Secretary of State (SoS) over plans to restructure local government in Northamptonshire which could include two unitary authorities has started Thursday, 29 November 2019.

The Government consultation has launched following proposals submitted by Northamptonshire councils back in August 2018. More »

SoS, James Brokenshire has announced that he will consult with all principal councils in Northamptonshire, principal councils neighbouring Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership, the Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner, local health bodies, the University of Northampton, and representatives of the voluntary sector.

He also welcomes views from any interested persons, including local residents and organisations.

The consultation period will run for eight weeks until 25 January 2019 and is available online at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/the-proposed-reorganisation-of-local-government-in-northamptonshire.

Paper copies will also be available in public offices and buildings of all the Northamptonshire councils.

Mr Brokenshire has also announced today that following a request from the eight Northamptonshire councils, he will bring forward an Order in Parliament to postpone district and parish elections that were due to be held in May 2019 until May 2020.

Should he decide to implement the proposal of two unitary authorities, it would have meant district and parish councillors serving only one year before unitary authority elections would be held in 2020.

He explains: "Elections in such circumstances risk confusing voters and would involve significant costs that would be hard to justify. Accordingly, I have concluded that irrespective of whatever my future decision might be on the restructuring proposal, the right course is to postpone these elections."

Cllr Ian McCord, Leader of South Northamptonshire Council commented: "Whatever we think about the proposal, or the circumstances that led us here, I am pleased after all these delays that we are now moving forwards." » Less
