I just found out someone objected to my local fibre cab


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

I have been patiently waiting for our local fibre cab to be built. Every few months BT push the date back. I started to think it might be a planning issue, so i checked our council planning site. I found that back in 2010 a local resident objected to the cab and since then nothing has happened!

My question is, what can I do? Do they expect my local area to suffer 3mb speeds (on a good day) cause someone doesn't like the cab on the street?

Link to letter: http://i.imgur.com/oLOaXPI.jpg

I think this is the cab on Google Street View http://goo.gl/maps/4dklr

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Steve

They didn't even complain themselves...

BT can put the cabinet anywhere within 100 metres of cable run to the existing cabinet so could install it out side the neighbour getting around this person's comments.

One person should not be able to stop permission for something that will benefit hundreds of households!

Really don't get what it has to do with security!

Only valid reason to object is because it blocks the pavement, i.e. making it impossible for 2 people to walk past each other on said pavement and therefore forcing one onto the road.

The letter confirms the cabinet constitutes permitted development, so that person's objection means nothing and Openreach were asked to reach out to them as a matter of courtesy.

Ask Openreach about the delay.

Generally anything out of the ordinary means it goes to the back of list, for the simpler to roll-out cabinets to be done.

That was a conservation area where planning permission was required, this isn't.

Of course that doesn't preclude the possibility that the resident did some kind of protest outside their property.

Is someone has written to the planning department raising an objection, you should be able to get a copy of the document perhaps via the planning department/government portal.

The house at 250 appears to be a gated enclave anyway smile
Are their concerns that someone will use the cabinet as a step to jumping over the spiked railings?

Is it right that the planning rules have changed, now BT don't need permission?

There are some changes coming, however the current / previous position is that planning permission is not required for any industrial structure below 15m tall, or possibly 15m or less, which is called "permitted development" and needs no planning permission other than in conservation areas.

Openreach and mobile companies tell the planners what they intend to do and that they regard it as permitted development, the planners have the opportunity to comment or disagree.
