Consultation on Planning Rules for Masts to Improve Mobile Signal

To get better mobile phone networks in rural communities, we need to have the right transmission masts in the right places. That's nothing new but the government wants to simplify the planning process to speed up deployment.

Therese said: "Whilst improving mobile signal in our part of Suffolk is vital, it doesn’t necessarily mean opening the floodgates to lots of new masts in the wrong places. I want to see a real focus on mast sharing and increased operator collaboration - and I will be encouraging our local councils to put forward sites on public land to help."
