Vale of Clwyd MP. Dr James Davies, has welcomed news from Matt Hancock, Minister of State for digital policy, that the Vale of Clwyd is expected to have 97% of premises with superfast broadband coverage by the end of the current Broadband Delivery UK project in June 2017. Currently according to Thinkbroadband, Vale of Clwyd has 92.3% coverage.
James said, “I and my team have been pushing for better broadband including holding regular meetings with BT Openreach and most recently with the Minister, Matt Hancock MP. I am concerned that some harder to reach rural areas are not being covered as quickly as we would like and we are keeping the pressure up by raising individual cases. However it is important to recognise the progress that has been made. Superfast broadband allows premises to stream movies and work from home with more intensive data demands. I am keen to stress that rural areas that are hardest to reach are eligible for subsidised satellite provision as well”.
Delivery of superfast broadband in Wales is jointly funded by the UK Government and the Welsh Government. Targets were for superfast speeds being available to 95% of homes and businesses by the end of 2017.
Denbighshire is first council in Wales to cut down on red tape
Traders are supporting a scheme to reduce red tape for Denbighshire businesses – the first of its kind in Wales.
Denbighshire County Council’s Better Business for All (BBfA) project brings together businesses and the Council’s planning and public protection department to improve how regulation is delivered to save businesses time and money.
The Council now offers better coordination between services so a more holistic service can be provided to businesses during visits.
Covering environmental health, trading standards, licensing and planning, BBfA provides businesses with a simple, single point of access to free advice on business regulations.
BBfA also helps businesses access grant funding and signposts them to other support.
Tom Moore of Henllan Bakery, based on Denbigh’s Colomendy Industrial Estate, said Denbighshire’s help was invaluable during the building of an extension to its site.
He said: “Denbighshire County Council has been really, really helpful. If I need to speak to them, there is always someone on the other end of the phone.
“It is a good, speedy and professional service. When we speak to someone they come to see us straight away. They have been absolutely brilliant.
Mike Learmond, of the Federation of Small Businesses, said: “The FSB was pleased to support the Better Business for All scheme in Denbighshire - the first of its kind in Wales.
