Newcastle City Council Digital Fixed Line Infrastructure Wayleave

Newcastle City Council has developed a standardised wayleave to help ensure that suppliers have quicker and easier access to land and assets to speed up the installation of fibre infrastructure. 

We are currently in the process of developing an online interactive tool that will allow you to provide information and upload documentation to secure an initial agreement in principle and request permission to work.    

In the meantime, we have developed a key steps flowchart that sets out the process to secure a wayleave agreement.

Please find below a Standardised Wayleave for existing land or building that reflects the changes in legislation set out in the Electronics Code 2017.
