Planning was refused by Richmond Council for a fibre cabinet opposite ( on the opposote side of the road) PCP011 in March 2011. I would like to know whether this is the end of the issue - ie no fibre broadband or whether in the light of new planning rules the fibre broadband cabinet will be installed. how do I find out.
If I remember rightly legislation is coming in later this year which states that BT can put cabinets wherever they please pretty much.
Also BT submitted a ton of sloppy planning permission requests en masse despite Richmond Council asking for discussion on the matters. Once BT actually sat down with the council and discussed things the vast majority of planning permissions were accepted.
EDIT: I see. The planning application didn't document pavement clearance, and BT didn't explain why it had to be on the other side of the road from the existing cabinet.
BT could've put in another application once they'd met the council but appear to have put just the one in and decided it wasn't worth their while.
