WANBOROUGH PARISH COUNCIL
Working for our Community
Take a look at our News Page for updates on our village.
The next Parish council meeting-. Wednesday 29th November at 7:30 in Wanborough Village Hall.
As you may be aware, government ambitions are for 85% of UK premises to have access to gigabit-capable (1000Mbps) broadband speeds by 2025 and more than 99% of UK premises to have access by 2030.
However, it is believed that there will be a small number of homes and businesses remaining across the UK, primarily those that are very isolated in rural areas with no nearby fibre infrastructure, that are unlikely to be connected to a gigabit-capable network through either a commercial rollout or government funded build.
The government have categorised these homes and businesses as Very Hard to Reach (VHTR) and has launched a consultation that is intended to help them develop their future policy options and understand the alternative mechanisms that may be required to improve broadband services to VHTR homes and businesses. SCC has not been advised on how many VHTR premises could be in Surrey nor where they are located.
If you would like to provide any feedback to the consultation, the document and details on how to respond to it can be found here - https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/improving-broadband-for-very-hard-to-reach
The consultation closes on 27th November 2023.
Surrey Hills AONB boundary review
Update June 2023
The consultation on the proposed extension to the Surrey Hills AONB has now closed. We’ve had approximately 1500 responses, and we’d like to thank everyone who submitted a response. This level of engagement is really positive, and will inform the next steps of the project. These responses are now being analysed, and will help inform the designation process, including any changes to the area of the proposed boundary extension. Once complete, Natural England will publish its response to the consultation in Consultation Analysis Report, likely in early 2024.
As a result of consultation, any new area to be added to the proposed extension would require further consultation. The finalised proposals would then be subject to a formal Notice Period prior to submission to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for their confirmation.
