Provision  and Delivery  of County Council Community Services: Policy E03 states ‘retro-fitting in existing urban areas and villages will be supported, subject to no detrimental impacts on listed buildings, the character and appearance of conservation areas and historic landscapes’. KCC believes that it is important that an appropriate balance is struck – and that the local planning approach follows emerging national policy from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport which is encouraging the removal of barriers to infrastructure deployment. KCC considers this to be important as otherwise the market is likely to be deterred from upgrading in these areas which could result in future or persistent connectivity ‘not-spots’ (i.e. where there is no or very poor connectivity).
