Aerials: Planning Permission

Volume 487: debated on Monday 9 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to the Answer of 4 February 2008, Official Report, column 890W, on aerials: planning permission, when she expects to publish the conclusions of the review of planning procedures for new base stations; and if she will make a statement. (252496)

We are still undertaking our review of the planning procedures relating to applications for new base stations.

We are currently considering whether the two reviews published on 24 November—the ‘Killian and Pretty Review: Planning applications—a faster and more responsive system: Final Report’ and the ‘Final report into Non householder minor development consent review’ by White Young Green Planning—have any implications for the work on telecommunications.

Should we decide that the telecommunication regulations need changing we will consult publicly on any options.
