The council recognises that access to good quality services is of real importance to rural residents. Many people rely on local services and facilities in their town or village, especially those without access to private transport.

These pages summarise the work of the Rural policy and partnerships team relating to rural pubs, shops and post offices, and also provide information for residents on community broadband projects and telecommunications services.
