Acquisition, Planning and Design

Clarke Telecom’s professional in-house Acquisition and Planning team comprises 41 staff, many RICS / RTPI chartered, with complementary skill sets and experience drawn from diverse backgrounds (ex-operator; private practice; infrastructure providers; local authority planning) that give our team industry leading insight and expertise.

We have been at the forefront of new site rollout for operator clients since the 1990s and more recently instrumental in client upgrade, consolidation and NTQ site replacement programmes. Our team has extensive first-hand experience of the acquisition and planning process from site search or upgrade instruction, through planning and full legal completion to handover to build.

By working closely with our clients, our in-house Design team and other stakeholders, the Acquisition and Planning team adopt a “right first time” approach to acquisition, from instruction to access. With over 7000 telecoms sites legally accessed in recent years, we have a very successful track record of delivery that is continually rewarded with repeat business from our clients.

Clarke Telecom’s in-house Design team ensures site designs reflect the best interests of the client for acquisition, build-ability, quality, value and asset life cycle costs. Established in 2004, the team have now produced over 30,000 cell site drawings for UK mobile telecommunications networks.
