Ofcom has reviewed an application for Code powers submitted by Atlas Tower Group Limited and announced it proposes to grant Code powers to the business.

The Grant of the Code powers is intended to assist persons who provide an electronic communications network and/or system of infrastructure. In particular, a person with Code powers (i.e. an “operator”) may:

  • construct and maintain infrastructure on public land (streets) without needing to obtain a specific street works licence to do so;
  • benefit from certain immunities from the Town and Country Planning legislation; and
  • in the event that agreement cannot be reached with the owner or occupier of private land, to apply to the Court to impose an agreement which confers the Code right being sought by the operator or provides for the Code right to bind the landowner or occupier.
