§ Keith Hill
The Code of Best Practice on Mobile Phone Network Developments was produced jointly by representatives of central and local Government and the mobile phone industry and built on Government guidance and the operators' commitments. The Code of Best Practice is non-statutory and does not purport to give definitive interpretation of the legal planning requirements, which is ultimately a matter for the courts. Therefore, there are no sanctions that can be imposed on a network operator who erects a transmitter in breach of the Code.
The Mobile Operators Association have commissioned Deloitte and Touche to carry out an independent review of the implementation of the Operators Ten Commitments. The results of the review will be made publicly available in due course.
