Fibre to the Premises SPD

Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is where fibre broadband is wired directly into to the premises, rather than the local area cabinet.  This often results in faster upload and download speeds than other forms of connectivity including copper cabling.

The Council considers that Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is essential infrastructure and vital to the delivery of sustainable development. 

Policy EMP6 of adopted Local Plan 2030 focuses on FTTP.  The policy requires qualifying development to deliver FTTP. 

This FTTP SPD was produced to provide further guidance on the requirements of the policy and the FTTP Statements.

The FTTP SPD was approved at Full Council in October 2020.
