Planning Permission: Aerials

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 8 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will end the practice of deemed planning consent for mobile telephone masts where telecommunications companies do not receive any notification. (174764)

We are currently reviewing the planning regulations governing the installation of mobile telephone masts contained in part 24 of schedule 2 to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (as amended). The prior approval process, to which the hon. Member refers, is being considered as part of that review. Should our review result in any substantive proposals for change we will consult publicly on any options.
