Our MP, Sir Oliver Heald, has welcomed the news that a second contract for the rollout of Superfast Broadband within Hertfordshire has been agreed. This makes available a total of £13.9M additional funding to carry out the Connected Counties programme by April 2019 and builds on the existing commercial fibre broadband programme which is being rolled out already. This contract will mean that 98% of premises within the country will have access to high-speed fibre-optic broadband coverage.

Sir Oliver has campaigned for super-fast broadband in our area for a long time and you can see where the programme is being rolled out by looking at the map here >>> which shows that places like Buntingford, Puckeridge, Standon and Braughing will all benefit from it which is tremendous news.

Braughing Parish Neighbourhood Plan

New rights and powers have been introduced to local communities to shape their own development by preparing Neighbourhood Plans.

In Braughing we have started our own Neighbourhood Plan which will contain the vision, aims and planning policies; as well as proposals for improving the parish, providing new facilities and allocation of key sites for specific kinds of development. It will relate to the use and development of land, and associated environmental, economic and social issues. It will cover the next 15 years.Interested residents have formed a steering group to look at areas like well-being, housing, employment, infrastructure, conservation and environment.

There will be open days to seek your opinions. We want the views of all age groups and from all parts of the area; and we need to know what is important to you about living in Braughing. There will be a big presence at the Braughing Fair and Wheelbarrow Race so come and talk to us and see how you can make a difference.
