5.0 Contents of a Planning Application
5.1 The quality of information submitted as part of a planning application for telecommunications development is very important. It should always be clear and complete. Good quality submissions can help explain to local people and consultees as well as planning officers and elected representatives exactly what is being proposed and its likely impact. By adopting high standards unnecessary time and effort in trying to explain proposals can be avoided and help allay concerns that ambiguous and incomplete information can cause.
5.2 In addition, good quality submissions are likely to result in speedier and better informed decisions. The Mobile Phone Operators have adopted a series of commitments to best siting practise. This includes the development of standard supporting document for planning permission. Annex D and Annex E sets out the operators Ten Commitments and the Traffic Light Model, which operators use to calculate the level of consultation they will undertake on individual proposals.
5.3 The following is a checklist of what Planning Service will expect to be included in a submission by the operator or on their behalf by an appointed agent.
