In there is a report on rural broadband in Lancashire, with information given about both the BT/BDUK project and the B4RN project by people from both companies.
The committee obviously discussed the overlap of the 2 projects, as there was a statement:
With regard to the rural villages in the Lancaster district, it was reported that the County Council could not instruct BT to enter these areas at present until the Government had given a ruling on this to Lancashire County Council.
and a resolution:
That, once the County Council has received a decision from the Government as to
whether BT can enter the areas B4RN has reached, this decision is circulated to the
Overview and Scrutiny Committee.
I guess we know the answer.
