Statement: Proposed Template Notices resulting from Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Act 2021 amendments to the Code

Published: 26 October 2022
Consultation closes: 7 December 2022
Status: Closed (statement published)

Statement published 19 January 2023

Ofcom is required to prepare and publish template notices which must or may (depending on the circumstances) be used by operators and landowners or occupiers under the Code when they seek to exercise Code rights. In October 2022, we published a consultation (the October Consultation) that sought views from operators and all other interested parties, on the form of two new draft template notices required under the new provisions in Part 4A.

We also used the consultation to invite comments on amending an existing template notice prescribed under paragraph 20(2) of the Code (notice seeking agreement to the conferral of rights) reflect the new process under Part 4A for Code Operators to gain access to land connected to leased premises.

Having carefully considered stakeholder responses to the October Consultation, we have decided not to make any substantive changes to the proposed template notices. However, we have decided to add an additional annex to the two new template notices to ensure Code Operators provide all of the information required under the regulations.

This statement sets out the reasons for our decision and the final notices are now appended to this statement and have also been published on the Code Template section of the Ofcom website.
