There are a number of premises in the tender intervention area which are under review, what does this mean?

Where commercial providers have indicated they intend to build new networks, we are required to consider how firm their plans are. Where there are definite and funded plans, these areas are considered to not require tax-payer support. Where commercial providers show a strong commitment, but not yet signed off investment or we need a little more information, we consider these areas to be under review but not in the scope of the CDS programme at the moment. These areas will be kept under review with providers and if plans change then we can bring these areas into the programme at a later date, where funding is available.

COVID-19 Info

Whilst measures to contain COVID-19 continue to evolve, CDS will attempt to maintain a Business As Usual approach, though there may be some unavoidable impact on our ability to respond to queries.
