Future planning legislation may benefit telecoms infrastructure

July 2015

telecoms consutlation

The Government has opened a consultation relating to telecommunications development. The consultation is based around recent changes to planning legislation as well as considering future changes to this legislation which may benefit the provision of telecoms infrastructure in the future.

Whilst the consultation is focussed on mobile networks, it is worthy of due consideration from other operators, including for the financial services and utilities industries who rely on mobile communications.

The consultation carries some key questions which relate to the height of masts, their location within ‘protected areas’ (which include Conservation Areas, National Parks etc) and requests for suggestions of additional rights which would benefit providers.
