Every Autumn, the five commercial mobile telephone operators provide the Local Planning Authority (LPA) with information showing the areas within the Borough where they have a need to site further telecommunications equipment within the coming year.
This information is made available in order that communities and elected Members can be involved with discussions regarding siting and design of equipment with operators prior to the submission of applications to the LPA.
It should be noted that the information indicates areas of search for new sites, and not specific locations, and thus the precise siting of equipment can be influenced at an early stage in the site identification process.
For further details regarding each search area, the operators concerned should be contacted directly. Details of existing sites can be found at Sitefinder.
