Planning Application : Poplars Lane

Planning application details have been added to the Planning Applications page for works at Holly Tree Farm. Full details of the application are on the Daventry District Council website in the normal way.

The Parish Council will consider the application at their meeting on 19 November.

Road Safety : VASID

dsc 0168

Our VASID (Vehicle-Activated Speed Indicator Device) was installed on Sywell Road this week. It will help us raise awareness of vehicle speeds through the 30mph part of the Parish.

The VASID will provide data about vehicle speeds which we can use with the authorities. It has various modes which displays vehicle speeds,  symbols,  and text. It will also will operate in “stealth” mode (where there is no display, but it is still recording information) – this is it’s current setting. We also have warning panels that fix to the bottom of the VASID to help get the speed awareness messages across.

Ultrafast Broadband : Gigaclear

This is a message from Sarah Naylor of Superfast Northamptonshire at NCC. We are due to have Ultrafast broadband by the end of the year, with work starting shortly.


Installing the network and making good afterwards

This will involve temporarily digging up pavements and roads to enable Gigaclear to lay full fibre cabling underground and also to install connection points outside the boundary of every property. All residents and businesses will be informed as soon as their connection is ready and they can take full advantage of the ultrafast broadband speeds available if they wish to place an order for services.

All works, which may cause disruption on the highway or pavements in order to complete the fibre installation, will be reinstated to Highways Authorities and Utilities Committee standards.

Keeping you informed

Gigaclear will provide channels of communication to help answer questions. They are also happy to attend a parish meeting to explain more about the rollout.

Further details of the areas covered in the project, and other useful information, can be found on Gigaclear’s and the Superfast Northamptonshire project websites, see links below.
