Planning

Residents have been sent a leaflet from "Harrow Estates" (Redrow) about a proposal to build 500 new homes on the fields around Failand as set out on their website "sustainablefailand.co.uk"

This is not a planning application but an attempt to get the site made a development area under the new Local Plan.

DO NOT fill in the Feedback Form on their site - it is contrived with questions which prevent you from objecting to the proposal and channel you into giving answers which support it.

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.
