The story goes that there is a stand off between GMC builders and BT/Openreach over the new footpath in South Road, next to the development named Village Meadow.
Apparently GMC aren’t willing to pay the amount of money to have the poles moved from the centre of the path to the edge as per the plans. They want BT to foot this bill.. Until the poles are moved, GMC will not top the path. BT will not move the poles until GMC pay the relocation price.
Let us hope a solution can be found – there are raised covers and curbs to step over, and bracing wires. In the meantime, it may be safer to walk in road, like we used to do!
