Wayleave services

Our team removes the inefficiencies associated with the traditional wayleave process.

We ensure telecoms operators and resellers are able to deliver their build plans faster and within budget so they can play their part in supporting the Government’s objective to provide nationwide access to gigabit capable speeds by 2025.

To find out what’s involved in the wayleave process, check out our wayleave datasheet below.

An automated solution

A key phase of any network extension programme involves detailed analysis of your plans and the interrogation of the Land Registry database and other available sources.

We have ploughed more than 600 hours into the development of a bespoke digital transformation project that can automate the investigation, creation and distribution of wayleaves. The new system is designed to handle tens of thousands more wayleaves per week, without the need for any additional human resources.

Using our automated approach, you can cut out the error-prone, labour intensive and expensive hours required to complete these tasks manually.

Our award winning automated approach:

Automatic reports

Automatically runs reports allowing faster access to data, saving significant time.

Digital mapping

Overlays KMZ files onto Google Earth showing locations – allowing proposed builds to be digitally mapped, analysed and possibly altered.

Accurate data

Prioritises the main stakeholders/property owners within the build area.
