Mobile Phones: Aerials

Volume 464: debated on Friday 19 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will amend planning guidance on mobile telephone masts to make disclosure of mast locations and power levels to a Sitefinder website or equivalent a condition of planning permission. (157501)

We have no plans to amend planning guidance in this way. The Government and the Office of Communications (Ofcom) remain committed to the principles underlying Sitefinder.

Each of the mobile network operators is in discussion with Ofcom and the Government on the future provision of data to Sitefinder so that members of the public will continue to be able to access information about the location of base stations in their neighbourhood.
