Policy IN4 

Broadband

Information communication networks, such as superfast broadband, will be supported across the whole of Melton Borough to reduce the need to travel and will be a requirement for new developments.

Proposals of 30 dwellings or more will be required to provide fixed fibre superfast broadband.

Proposals for residential development of less than 30 dwellings and commercial development will be required to provide fixed fibre broadband where this is technically feasible, subject to viability.

New developments must be served by either:

i) Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) technology ; or

ii) Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) technology enabling access to broadband speeds of up to 80 megabits per second.
