Our dedicated client owned structures team can effectively manage single sites or portfolios where Landlords own and have increased responsibility for maintaining supporting structures. Our experienced team working in conjunction with our Access Management department, stringently monitor and control activities to these sites.
The UK government amended the Electronic Communications Code as part of the Digital Economy Act 2017. The ‘new Code’ is found in Schedule 3A of the Communications Act 2003 and is the principle legislation that governs the relationship between electronic communications apparatus and land.
Fibre is integral to the UK’s connectivity goals and the government has pledged to have ‘full fibre’ in place throughout the UK by 2033. Fibre providers such as Openreach, Virgin Media, Vodafone and CityFibre need agreements in place with land and building owners which provide them with rights of access to install and maintain their networks on privately owned land.
Electronic communications apparatus and property developments tend not to mix very well! Most telecom operators have statutory powers which mean that property owners cannot simply expect them to depart the land or building once a lease or licence has expired or is terminated.
