Help support Norfolk’s bid for multi-million pound funding to improve digital connectivity

  • Business support letters are needed to support a multi-million pound bid for digital connectivity funding

As part of their work to improve digital connectivity across our region, the Norfolk County Council submitted an Expression of Interest for Local Full Fibre Network (LLFN) funding to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in September 2018.

Their application was successful and they now need to submit a full funding application.  As part of the application, they need to collate a series of support letters from the local business community to submit in conjunction with the funding bid.

If successful, the funds would enable 410 sites across Norfolk to receive a gigabit fibre to the premises solution.  This will benefit both businesses and residential properties, including rural sites, business parks and industrial estates, schools and care homes.

Please see a letter from David Dukes, Economic Development Manager at Norfolk County Council, explaining the full benefits of the funding and why he needs your letter of support.  To help make it easy, there is a template support letter which we would ask you to complete and return to Norfolk County Council by email: econdev@norfolk.gov.uk.

Help ensure our county has great digital connectivity and send your letter of support before 31 December 2018.
