URGENT – Road Closures

There are a number of upcoming road closures in the area.

Covet Lane junction with Valley Road 12th to 16th July 07:30 t0 17:00, two way signals will be in operation. SE Water works.

The Street 22nd July to 26th July, the road will be closed outside Railway Cottage. The work is to move a water meter so it is unlikely to take anywhere near that time but you never know.

Broadband Fibre Project

Cllr Chatley has been in contact with KCC with regards to their voucher scheme. Although it has still not been agreed the likely amount is not going to be more than £1000 and is only available to properties whose internet speed is less than 30 Mb, there are only 59 properties in Kingston that are eligible. The government scheme of £1500 per household is available to all properties but even if there was a 90% take up there is still a minimum shortfall of £132,000. Sadly it doesn’t look like we can progress any further with this project.
