  • details of alternative sites considered, including site sharing
  • information about the purpose and need for the development

Permitted development

There is no statutory planning requirement to provide information to us for development permitted under the GDPO, however the developer is obliged under Regulation 5 of the Electronic Communications Code (Conditions and Restrictions) Regulations 2003 to notify the local planning authority in writing of the intention to install telecommunications apparatus. This is also reflected in the Code of Best Practice on Mobile Phone Network Development which suggests that operators should notify the local authority of the installation of telecoms equipment.

Prior Notification requirements are:

  •  a written description of the proposed development
  •  a plan showing the proposed location
  •  evidence that the developers notice has been served (notice served on owners of intention to develop a site)
  •  the appropriate fee
