Mar 73

DoE 25/73 and WO 48/73 (13 March 1973)

This circular introduces a copy of the Post Office Operational Land Regulations 1973. The circular says that, in the preparation of these regulations, only land used for telecommunications and postal services has been regarded as analogous to the operational land of other statutory undertakers, and not even all sites for these services have been specified as operational land.

The circular also explains that in the new Town and Country Planning Development Order 1973, a general permission for a limited range of minor development carried out by the Post Office, only some of which would be tied to operational land, has been included in class eighteen of schedule one.
