Broadband Update

If you did not get to tonight's Annual Parish Meeting you missed a very interesting presentation on the future of Fast Fibre Broadband in Denton.

Former Denton resident, Karen O'Kane, who is the Director of Norfolk County Council's "Better Broadband for Norfolk" Programme, explained how broadband is being rolled out across the County and revealed the challenges this presents in rural areas.

But the most interesting part of the presentation was when she gave details of what is planned for Denton. We were told that this is proceeding in four phases:

These are the figures quoted by Karen this evening. They total 174 but there are supposed to be only 158 properties in the village? Watch this space!

Every Other Month

The Parish Council have decided to change the frequency of their meetings.

For many years (since the year dot?) Denton PC has normally met on the second Tuesday of every month with the exceptions of August and December. There have been occasional further exceptions; perhaps the most notable one being in February last year when the date clashed with Valentine's Day and the romantic councillors decided they had duties elsewhere.

On Tuesday evening, at the Council's Annual Meeting, it was decided to follow the custom of many other PCs and switch to meeting every other month. In future they will thus be held in January, March, May, July, September and November. Of course additional meetings can always be called if significant urgent issues, e.g. a contentious planning application, should arise.
