Property Developers and Planning Authorities

Property Developers and Planning Authorities interested in installing Superfast broadband infrastructure on existing and future developments should download the guidance documents below, issued by Hampshire County Council.

The documents aim to highlight the benefits to developers of installing high speed broadband infrastructure on new developments; they also give Local Planning Authorities in Hampshire some background on Government and Hampshire County Council aspirations for future broadband provision, the current “gap” between aspirations and reality at present. Guidance is provided on approaches that could be taken to engage developers on the issue of future-proofing broadband provision in new developments.

Information is also provided on key aspects of the installation and ownership of broadband infrastructure.
