The Low Impact Determination

The Government recognises that there are some telecommunications facilities and activities that are unlikely to cause significant community disruption or significant environmental disturbance. These are exempt from certain State and Territory laws. These new facilities and activities are referred to both within the Telecommunications Act 1997 and the Telecommunications (Low-impact Facilities) Determination 1997.

The Determination defines what low-impact installation activities may be undertaken in certain areas without reference to particular State and Territory laws. Part 1, Part 3 item 5 and Part 7 are relevant to the mobile carriers.
