Issue details

7/8 Horsemarket, Darlington

BT Openreach are rolling out fibre broadband to replace existing copper and improve broadband speeds in Darlington. To do this in Horsemarket they propose to run a short length of fibre cable up the front wall of 7/8 Horsemarket to a small junction box and they have requested a wayleave. Openreach have confirmed that they have statutory powers for this and they will enforce the installation if we refuse to grant a wayleave by agreement. The wayleave is terminable in the event of redevelopment.
