Cllr Chatley reported that he has received a number of emails from Openreach. One stated that Kingswood Farm & Kingswood Manor farm were served by Stelling Minnis exchange and were removed from our list. A second email from them stated that Reed Mill, The Mill Tower, Westwood Farm & Little Westwood Farm had already applied separately and were also removed from our list.

A third email gave an initial quote of £498,222 which we have calculated to be 72 properties, if they get the £7000 grants available. Cllr Chatley had spoken to the KCC Project manager who advised that we request a formal quote and send her the initial proposal. Cllr Chatley has requested that Openreach supply a formal quote and is still awaiting a response from the KCC Project Manager.
