Connecting Cumbria - Update on Phase 2 Contract

Following approval of delegated authority to the Corporate director in June 2015 a contract for phase 2 of Connecting Cumbria was awarded to BT. This contract was conditional on confirmation of the matched funding allocation from the LGF and completion of BDUK assurance of the project intervention area.

A risk has been identified to the LGF funding therefore a Cabinet decision is to be sought on if the contract should be enacted and alternative funding options
