Staffordshire Parish Council Association updated the Parish Council that Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is seeking views from households on the specification for a broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO) to be set in secondary legislation.
Please go to the link and have your say. Consultation closes at midday on 9th October 2017.
The Digital Economy Act 2017 which received Royal Assent in April, enabled the creation of a new broadband Universal Service Obligation (USO), giving every household and business the right to request a broadband connection at a minimum speed of at least 10Mbps, up to a reasonable cost threshold – no matter where they live or work. Following this, the Government is consulting on the specific design of the USO which would be set in secondary legislation.
Unfortunately the dates for this Temporary Traffic Regulation Order have been brought forward and the works are now due to start on 11 September 2017 and finish on 15 September 2017.
Staffordshire County Council gives notice to make an Order the effect of which will be to prohibit any vehicle from proceeding in that length of Bennetts Lane in Bramshall in the vicinity of property called Cloudwood unless the vehicle is being used in connection with the works; or unless the vehicle requires access to premises on the length of road. Pedestrian access will be accommodated.
An alternative route for traffic is available via Bennetts Lane, B5027 Stone Road, B5027 Bramshall Road, B5027 Stone Road, B5027 Oldfields Road, B5027 Stafford Road, A518 Stafford Road, Loxley Lane and vice versa.
