Issue details

Connecting Cumbria - Fibre GarDen Project

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.
