Telecoms shake up in prospect?

A key part of this is the open market rent provision - it is this that ensures a telecoms mast pays 35 times the rent that an electricity plyon attracts.

But the Law Commission (the expert body that advises Government on statute law) has released a consultation document which argues that this should change: in future rents should be paid on the basis used for compulsory purchase legislation.

This is the basis used by the electricity industry, and if the Law Commission proposals are adopted, would lead to major falls in telecome rents.

Oliver Harwood of RH & RW Clutton will be responding to the consultation, arguing that the current system works reasonably well (UK operators are able to provide good service to 90% or more of the country) and there is no need to fundamentally change it (though the termination provisions could be better drafted).

The consultation document is available at
