Through DEFRAís Rural Community Broadband Fund (RCBF), Cumbria County Council submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) in July 2012 for funding for 6 communities based on the exchange at; Bootle, Braithwaite, Culgaith, Holmrook, Shap and Threlkeld.
Confirmation was received from DEFRA that the EOI was successful at the end of September 2012. The information used as a base for the EOI is shown within the below spreadsheets.
Please note that the Shap spreadsheet contains a separate tab of those addresses determined within Eden Valley Digital.
Cumbria County Council is now progressing with a full application.
In April 2013, Cumbria County Councilís Cabinet approved the inclusion of Eden Valley Digital, Great Asby and Northern Fells pilot areas in their full application to the RCBF. These pilots have to date been approved at EOI stage. The information used as a base for the inclusion is shown within the below spreadsheets.
Please note that these spreadsheets exclude any properties that are already identified within the original 6 communities and Shap extension.
A joint application will now be made by CCC with support from the relevant communities by end April 2013. A response from RCBF is anticipated July 2013.
