Welcome to the Churt Parish Council website

Churt is a small village which stands on the A287 about half way between Farnham and Haslemere. It lies in the far south west of the county of Surrey, bordering both Hampshire and West Sussex. Please use this web-site to learn more about our village.

Communication from David Harmer our Surrey County Councillor re Superfast Broadband and the Government's promise to have it available to all.
I have now had a chance to analyse the input from BT/BDUK (via SCC). They've made it a good deal more complicated, to accommodate the possibly now outdated commitment from the Prime Minister regarding a Universal Service Obligation of 30Mb/sec. However, it looks like most of the info is reasonably accurate. Critically it is proposed, by SCC, to concentrate the next phase on the properties with less than 15 Mb/sec (as per the originally declared intention). The 647-page listing of postcodes refers to these as "Target White". People in those postcodes need not respond to the consultation because they are already on the list for further investment.

Everyone else, unless they already have access to more than 30Mb/sec, ought in their own interests to check the data, but I've been through it and below I list the relevant postcodes with their designation.

In this context Grey means everyone in that postcode already has access to 30 Mb/sec or more.
White means they already have access to between 15Mb/sec and 30Mb/sec.

Anyone who believes that the download speed available to them (whether or not they have bought such a service) is less than the designated code for thier postcode should respond to the consultation as explained on the website.

If they don't there is a probability that their postcode will receive no further investment, though they might still be lucky. The consultation closes on May 24th at 1700. I therefore suggest the following text for the public, and of course the lists need to be part of the communication. The question remains how best to let everyone in the Parish know. If you have an email list, you could mass mail it, and then I could (under strict supervision) go through that list and make my own list from the Register of those people not on your list who are in the grey or white listing. Then I could letter drop those people, perhaps excluding those who I believe to be already correctly in the grey list.
