Neighbourhood Plan Online

Proposals for new or upgraded telecommunications equipment and installations will be permitted (where planning permission or ‘prior approval’ is required) where:

(a) the telecommunications equipment and installation would not have a significant adverse effect on its landscape setting, landscape character, heritage and visual amenity by reason of its siting and design or as a result of cumulative impact with nearby development;

(b) opportunities have been sought to share masts or sites with other providers and, where appropriate, the erection of antennae on existing buildings or other structures; and

(c) the proposal conforms to the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) guidelines, taking account where appropriate of the cumulative impact of all operators’ equipment located on the mast/site.
