Planning issues surrounding telecoms installations have become increasingly difficult and sometimes highly controversial. As specialists in the telecoms sector we keep fully abreast of relevant planning developments and frequently our innovative approach and in-depth knowledge proves to be the key to securing a positive outcome with the more challenging of projects.
We have a proven track record in securing planning consents for Telecoms operators. Through numerous submissions of planning applications, we have built sound working relationships with the local planning authorities throughout the UK.
Working alongside design we seek to maximise the chance of application approval by offering solutions that adhere to the local planning authority preferences, whilst also meeting the operational needs of our client. Visually attractive photo montages can be compiled in order to assist with application. We can offer solutions to minimise any visual impact of the mast such as screening using trees and utilising light- weight lattice masts where at all possible.
Where necessary we will issue press notices, liaise with the planning officer and attend committee consultation events in order to address any concerns of the local community and thus assist in gaining a consented application. With profound knowledge surrounding the Telecoms planning process we are able to quickly and effectively secure planning consent on even the most challenging of sites. Often, on the more contentious of sites, the local planning authority will ask for photo montages, or landscape visual impact assessments to be provided, Dales Surveying can arrange for these to be produced as soon as possible.
