Latest News on Gigaclear Broadband Roll Out in Uplyme Village

My name is Daniel Langworthy-Smith and I am the wayleave officer that represents the ultra-fast fibre installation company – Gigaclear. You may be aware, but we have been instructed by Connecting Devon and Somerset and Broadband Delivery UK to roll out a new ultra-fast network that can provide 1gb of internet to rural properties. Uplyme is one of our areas and I am making contact as I feel that it is important for our build but also the residents to know exactly what will be happening over the next couple of months.

Below I have attached some links that will explain who we are, what we do and why we are doing it for. You will see that we also have government backing and farmer union backing.

The process requires us to sometimes gain access onto private property and we would like to give people the opportunity to contact us with any questions before they agree to the agreement that will be sent out.

Could we suggest arranging a parish meeting that we could come along to and speak with the residents about our proposals?

I have attached above a copy of the build plan for Uplyme which you are able to include onto your webpage.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) is a whole system of regulations, systems, rights and principles that aims to protect the personal data of every EU citizen. The GDPR legislation documents are huge and set out to give a person more rights over the data that an organisation holds on them, but in a nutshell, the main points are as follows:

  • A person can request to see all the details that you hold on them both in human and machine readable format.
  • A person can request that you delete all the personal data that is held by an organisation
  • You need to state a valid reason for gathering and processing their data
  • You need to ask for consent when you gather data
  • You need to provide people with a way of withdrawing that consent at any time.

Lyme Regis to Uplyme Footpath Temporary Closure of Part of the Path

As part of the River Lim Path improvement works, it is necessary to close part of the path from Springhead Road & Mill Lane, to the bridge into Bumpy Field, [BRIDLEWAY NO. 65 UPLYME]. Devon County Council has issued the formal notice for this under the Road Traffic Regulation Act.

The closure will be in force until 1 July 2018, but it will not be closed for the whole of this period, only when the contractor needs to do so. When it is closed it will not be possible to use the path as a public right of way, except for access to land or premises on or adjacent to the path.

HOWEVER AT SOME TIME DURING THIS PERIOD, THE PATH WILL BE COMPLETELY CLOSED FOR 2-3 DAYS, SO THAT THE BRIDGE OVER THE RIVER NEAR THE OLD MILL THAT LEADS INTO BUMPY FIELD, CAN BE REPLACED.

The formal notices will be put up by the contractor when the closure is required, so walkers should check to see if the sign is in place.

The Lyme Regis to Uplyme path project is being led by LymeForward. If there are any queries about the project, please contact Simon Williams, the River Lim Path Project Coordinator on 07980730004.

Weather warning Friday, 02/03/2018

Council urges not to use the roads on Friday morning

We’re urging people not to use the roads tomorrow morning (Friday 2 March).

Continued snow in parts overnight, and freezing rain, on top of sub-zero temperatures, make driving conditions potentially dangerous.

You might be tempted to use the car, but please don’t.  Road conditions are still hazardous.  Please make other arrangements in the morning.  Read more.

Reminder – Neighbourhood Plan exhibition tomorrow

Please come along to the Village Hall on Saturday 21st between 10 and 1pm, when you will be able to see displays about the most important topics in the Plan, and ask any questions you may have. Printed copies of the plan will also be available for consultation.

Update 23/10: 86 people came to the hall to find out more before they voted! See above.

The referendum, at which Uplyme electors get to decide whether or not the Plan should be adopted, is on Thursday 26th, also at the Hall, between 7 am and 10pm. Please vote, and decide Uplyme’s future one way or the other!

Neighbourhood Plan Leaflet – exhibition and voting

Almost time to vote on the Neighbourhood Plan

Now that the Plan has been approved by EDDC, the last stage is for the electors of Uplyme to vote on whether they want the Plan to be “made” – that is, used by EDDC to determine local planning applications.

If the plan is made, the planning policies written in it will have the same weight as national planning policy. If the plan is not made (that is, more than 50% of those voting do not agree with it), then EDDC will continue to make decisions based on national and district policy, without regard to the Plan itself. So, whether you agree with the plan or not, it’s important that you vote: this will help determine what happens in Uplyme until 2031!

  • Last Date for Voter Registration – Tuesday 10 October 2017
  • Receipt of Postal Vote Applications – 5:00 pm Wednesday 11 October 2017
  • Receipt of Proxy Vote Applications – 5:00 pm Wednesday 18 October 2017
  • Day of Poll – 7:00 am to 10:00 pm Thursday 26 October 2017

Please make sure you are on the electoral register in good time if you’d like to take part in this important poll, which will determine whether local or district policies apply to planning etc.
