Re: About time councils put their foot down
Sounds to me that the estate developer has trousered the money from 300 homes - what's that £100m or so? - without paying for any infrastructure upgrade. After all, in a new estate they have to deal with someone to get the telecomms in and sounds like in this case it's Openreach. In that discussion the developer could have put some money on the table to upgrade the network infrastructure but presumably chose not to.
Most developers will happily give information about floor plans, countryside and commuting. But until enough include services in their buying decision developers won't invest in infrastructure.
