Oxen Park Power Plan Approved

A quick update from Connecting Cumbria about the cabinet in Oxen Park. It will not have passed Oxen Park residents by that the promised cabinet has not materialised....... yet. It is coming I am assured and the good news is that the plan to supply the necessary power to it has now been approved by ENW. The uncertainty now is that to supply the power a road closure is needed (we seem to have had a fair few of these recently) and they are waiting for the formalities to complete.
For those of you in this neck of the woods (Colton) like myself, I’m promised an update in the immediate future. Almost certainly any cost effective long term solution will rely on tapping into the fibre being laid to Oxen Park. Watch this space.....
