Mayor of London publishes rooftops agreement templates to address mobile ‘not spots’

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has published a number of legal agreement templates to help simplify and speed up the process of deploying mobile network equipment on rooftop and greenfield sites, in response to requests from the business community for guidance on this topic.

The templates have been developed in partnership with the British Standards Institution, with the support of City of London, and a steering committee made up of representatives of Transport for London, London local authorities, Cabinet Office, landlords, RICS, British Property Federation, network operators and their partnerships.

The templates can be found here (under the ‘Templates for drafting legal agreements” tab).

The project was inspired by the City of London’s Standardised Wayleave Toolkit and the City of London kindly supported the development of these documents. The documents are intended for use by both mobile network operators and their site provider, both in London and beyond. They are intended to act as a neutral starting point for discussions, are voluntary and can be adapted.

This move has been welcomed by business group London First, which has today (27 September) released a report, Enhancing Digital Connectivity, which argues that steps must be taken now if full fibre is to become the norm across the capital.
