M27 J9 Slip Rd Improvements

It looks like there will be some improvements to Junction 9. They are being funded and delivered by the Highways Agency and they are primarily looking to widen the east and westbound slip roads from two to three lanes. Delivery dates for work on the Junction are not yet confirmed, but it is hoped to start on site in January 2015.

Cornerstone Church of England Primary School

We have already enjoyed a positive and vibrant start to the new school year. It has been wonderful to see the children happy and settling in quickly, engaging with their activities and learning. 

We have an exciting year ahead as a school as we develop a creative and inspiring curriculum based on the new national curriculum. We also have plans to develop even stronger partnerships with our parent community who value our school. 

Our Reception class (Bumble Bees) is full this year which is wonderful as it has brought new children and their families into our school community. However we still have places for children in years 1, 2 and 3. 

If you are a parent who is moving into to the area and considering a school for your child, Mr. Tim Clarke our Headteacher, would be delighted to meet you, take you on a tour of our beautiful building and grounds and answer any questions you may have. 

If you wish to book a visit to the school please contact us on 01489 660750 to speak to Mrs. Dawn Gadd (our Admin Officer), or alternatively contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

BT Superfast Broadband - August 2014

BT Superfast Broadband Whiteley

BT have indicated that any Whiteley cabinet not already enabled for superfast broadband is now unlikely to be included in BT's Commercial Deployment because they deem it not viable. This means that many cabinets in Whiteley may never be enabled for superfast broadband.

FTTC fibre broadband such as BT Infinity (upto 80mbps) needs your street cabinet (pcp) to be upgraded with a FTTC (Dslam) cabinet as well as your local exchange to be Fibre enabled before you can get fibre broadband.

Not all the cabinets in a FTTC fibre enabled exchange area will be upgraded, so some areas in that exchange area will be unable to get fibre broadband at this current time.

If there is no mention of WBC FTTC when checking the BT Wholesale Database then unfortunately it looks like your cabinet isn't currently in Openreach's fibre broadband rollout plan. 

Click here to see what your looking for in the BT Wholesale Database

Your options are now to live with shared 8mb (in reality this is much less than this due to contention) or residents privatly funding an upgrade of the cabinet by grouping together to pay for this. Or you could wait for government funding.

Please be aware that the Whiteley and Park Gate Exchanges have been enabled. It just that some cabinets have not been upgraded due to the technical limitations of BT's network in some areas. Sometimes, the costs of deploying superfast fibre means it's not commercially viable for BT to provide it without external funding. 

Cabinets not enabled

Cabinet 55 - Camelia Way - In January 2014 BT said it wasn't commercially viable to upgrade as there were not enough users. Estimated cost to upgrade £20k

Cabinet 57 - Kipling Close. BT said it wasn't commercially viable to upgrade as there were not enough users. Estimated cost to upgrade £20k

Cabinet 58 - Feeds Maryat Way / Blake Close / Dumas Drive area. No Fast Broadband will not be included in any upgrade as it is not commercially viable.  Estimated cost to upgrade £15k

Cabinet 59 - Dumas Drive area - No Fast Broadband will not be included in any upgrade as it is not commercially viable.  Estimated cost to upgrade £15k

Cabinet 104 - Bader Way - Awaiting a power supply upgrade. ETA from BT wholesale is Sept 2014 although this has slipped before.

Cabinet 105 - BT said it wasn't commercially viable to upgrade as there were not enough users. Estimated cost to upgrade £15k

Cabinet 106 - Lovage Road has Infinity

Cabinet 107 - has Infinity

BT Say they need 100 subscribers for a cabinet to be commercially viable to upgrade to superfast broadband.
