378% increase in Prior Approval of Telecoms Operators applications 2019 –

*Planning Market Insight Report - February 2021*

*378% increase in Prior Approval of Telecoms Operators applications 2019 –

Despite global pandemics, local and national lockdowns, and an increased
voice of conspiracy theorists, the number of applications for Prior
Approval of Telecoms Operators throughout England and Wales in 2020 saw the
largest increase in popularity with the six-month period between March and
August 2020 realising the greatest growth.

This mass surge in popularity is due, in the most part, to the development
and current investment in the 5G infrastructure by UK Telecoms operators in
line with the Government’s 5G strategy that sees this next generation of
mobile technology to revolutionise the way we connect aiming for majority
UK coverage by the end of 2027.

Latest research from Mobile UK shows that there is growing concern as to
the impacts the 5G network will have on our health. Almost half those
surveyed were unsure about the negative health risks with 3% actively
against the implementation. The uncertainty around this has been prominent
enough that Mobile UK have launched their new #5GCheckTheFacts
campaign to help ensure the nation that extensive research has been carried
out and no ill affects have been seen.

To understand the full extent of the implementation of the 5G
infrastructure, this month’s report also includes comment from Andrew
Neilson, Senior Manager of New Sites at Openreach about the organisation’s
experience in enabling connections to new homes in 2020.

As always, the report includes a wealth on insight into other areas of
development. In line with last year’s application trend, January achieved
an increase of 19% compared to 2019 and sets a record all-time high for
this month! This edition’s regional review focuses on the Greater London
Authorities, reviewing application submissions to the 35 London Boroughs
and Development Corporations within the Greater London area and we take a
more in depth look at the causes of ever-increasing planning application
