In April 2021, the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) (formally Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG)) and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) launched a joint technical consultation which sought views on the detail of proposals to amend permitted development rights to support increased mobile coverage and 5G deployment.

The technical consultation closed on 14 June 2021. The government is considering the responses and will issue its response in due course. Subject to the outcome of this consultation, we will bring forward secondary legislation to implement the proposals.
