Virgin Media - Cable Laying

  • Virgin Media have begun laying fibre optic cables throughout the village
  • They have promised to let us have details of their work plan and these will be shown here when we have them
  • The work is supposed to involve narrow, shallow, trenches but there will be some additional street cabinets around the village
  • The sites for these cabinets have been selected in conjunction with City of York Council Highways Department
  • In addition, there will be some junction chambers sited below ground level that will necessarily entail larger excavation work
  • If residents have any issues or complaints about this work please report them to the Parish Clerk using the ‘contact us’ form or email
  • If you see the contractors doing something that causes danger, either to road users or pedestrians, please call the Police on 101 for them to take immediate action.
