The Connecting Cumbria project contract was awarded to BT to deliver a broadband service in a defined geographical area of Cumbria. If this community scheme is to go ahead, it is necessary for The Council to agree to remove the area covered by it from the area covered by the wider Connecting Cumbria scheme. This is due to funding conflict issues which would otherwise prevent the Fibre Garden scheme going ahead. This report will present the options for members and explain the issues and risks of each option.
