Update: fibre broadband rollout update for bridge

Please see below update from Julian Cowans, Cornwall Development Company regarding the fiber broadband rollout for Bridge

'In terms of the build to Bridge, as some of you will be aware we had managed to bring the build forward rather than wait until the main work of the DEFRA funded contract extension happens next year. Openreach tell me that the build is progressing well and they expect to have completed this by Xmas. There is one small access problem we need to try and resolve, but this affects just one property.

Once the build and testing has been completed there will be a commissioning phase which usually takes 2-4 weeks, and is outside of the control of the local build team. My best estimate is therefore that the area will be ready to order in January, barring any unforeseen circumstances, although the team are working to try and complete asap.

 For information the scheme is wider than just the business park and covers a total of 100 addresses, mainly within the following postcodes:

TR16 4HY, TR16 4QE, TR16 4QG, TR16 4QL, TR16 4QP, TR16 4QQ, TR16 4QW

Please note that the boundaries of postcode areas do not neatly align with the way the network deployment needs to happen. So once an area has been enabled, it is not necessarily true that all the premises in the postcode will experience an improvement in broadband speeds.

If anyone has any follow up queries please contact me on Julian.cowans@cornwalldevelopmentcompany.co.uk or 07834 891660.'



 

 

 

 

What a wonderful email to open first thing on a Monday morning:

‘My wife and I live in Liskeard and get around Devon and Cornwall as much as possible in our free time. We have visited Portreath on our bikes several times in the past 5 years.

We were there again this weekend and were impressed how much tidier and attractive the village appeared. The most impressive facility compared to other Cornish towns was the town toilets!! In the past few years toilets in most places have decreased, deteriorated and become chargeable. The attractive and innovative outside decoration of yours is commendable, as was the cleanliness and free usage. ‘

 

We will shortly be moving to our autumn and winter opening arrangements, where two toilets will be open from dawn until dusk and one available 24 hours a day. Please see individual doors for opening. Once again Councillors wish to extend their thanks to the Portreath Association Ltd and Portreath Improvements Committee for their donation towards the winter running cost of the toilets, making it possible to maintain a service all year.
