Telecommunications

Scottish Government Planning Legislation and Guidance The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2001 No. 266 introduced a requirement for planning permission for a range of telecommunications developments (including all ground masts), and changed permitted development rights of operators'. These legislative changes came into effect on the 23rd July 2001.

At this time the following document was published:-

This was followed in September 2001 by Planning Advice Note (PAN) 62 'Radio Telecommunications', which provides advice on good practice in the siting and design of telecommunications infrastructure.

The main focus will be on achieving developments that are better sited and designed within rural and urban areas. Stirling Council's current Planning Policy on Telecommunications Local Plan Alteration 1A: Policy ED26 looks to reflect this national guidance.
