Installing in our area! Wayleave Point of Contact at Virgin?

I posted a few months ago - Virgin are presently doing MAJOR works in my corner of Greater Manchester, adding literally thousands of new properties less than 100m from our estate.
I spoke with the friendly installers and they advised our estate is in Wayleave - typical of 'New Builds' on Leaseholds.
Over the last few months I have spoken with or Estate Management Company (trinty), who upon looking in to it passed it on to our Freehold Managers (Simarc), who after a few MORE weeks - and nudging from me - passed it on to Eris Media; their Wayleave management company.
They state they are waiting for Virgin to get back in touch with them - which is at odds with the last information I got previously from a very helpful manager on this forum who said they were waiting for Freeholder approval.
I'm worried that Eris are sitting on a 10-year old stance of Virgin, before they started actually digging up our street last month! Whilst our estate has a modern set of BT Ducts, ripe for sharing - it ALSO has a woefully underused conduit network of pipes, simply used to provide each house with access to a communal development Freeview aerial and the rest of the pipes remains 90% unoccupied. Hopefully these could offer even cheaper install routes.
Is anyone at Virgin able to take a quick look at this? I can PM details (full address, point of contact at Eris Media, etc) - even if the response was "We've now spoken TODAY and we can't get come to an agreement"; that'd at least provide some sort of closure!
I appreciate the embuggerance of leaseholds (especially the like of Simarc) and the high chance this'll be bad news BUT it would be better if 2 humans on either side of the fence could communicate to each other and confirm the final result to us desperate for faster broadband - especially now so many of us are working from home.
