Pebmarsh Parish Council has been liaising closely with County Broadband regarding the lack of warning before the road closure on The Street in the village today.
After investigation, it has been identified that the contractors working on behalf of County Broadband failed to notice the closure correctly locally, this was an administration error for which County Broadband has apologised.
Signs have now been put up to enable residents to know the duration of the works and to highlight the business within the closure is open. Access for emergency services will be provided at all times and the teams on the ground will work with residents to maintain access to home and business owners.
This has been taken very seriously within County Broadband and has been escalated to director level with their Contractors.
County Broadband apologises for any inconvenience caused today.
