Planning

The Preferred Options for sites in the New Local Plan do not include the fields around Failand:

New Local Plan

Proposed development sites are indicated in red, the nearest being Woodspring Golf Course south of Long Ashton.

However it is proposed to remove (inset) the Failand triangle itself, outlined in black, from the Green Belt.

Broadband

Most people in Failand use standard "Fibre" broadband, actually Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC), from BT or any ISP, which delivers 80Mbps near the cabinet by the traffic lights down to less than 20Mbps at the furthest points like Jubilee Drive.  There is now the option to use full Fibre broadband, Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP), from Gigaclear at speeds up to an awesome 900Mbps via the recently installed black 'pots' outside each house, providing speed independent of location.
