The council as landowner
In considering requests to site telecommunications masts and equipment on council owned land, we have two distinct functions as landlord and planning authority.
These are dealt with entirely separately. The government has given telecommunications operators’ legal rights to use public highway land for telecommunications development. On other council land, we can decide, as landowner, whether or not to allow telecommunications development. We will consider the use of our sites for telecommunications proposals individually. This will include consultation with occupiers to establish whether the terms of a proposal could be agreed and determine whether a formal planning application should be submitted.
