Making stronger connections with local MP’s

Making stronger connections with local MP’s

Thursday, 11 August 2022

As part of our Speed Up Britain campaign to promote the faster roll-out of infrastructure across the UK, we recently welcomed local MP’s to some of our sites to help them understand what we do and how their support can help local communities.

Our first visit was in North Wales with Clwyd South’s MP, Simon Baynes. Julian Shariff, our Head of Property & Estates and Kevin Wright, our Generalist & Incident Manager from the HQSE team, attended the site visit. We showed what is required when building a site and how we maintain the equipment. We provided information about The Code legislation and the impact of the recent Supreme Court decision on speeding up the roll-out of infrastructure.

Simon Baynes MP said:
“I was very glad to have the opportunity to see and learn more about mobile infrastructure in Clwyd South – particularly as broadband and mobile connectivity is an issue on which my constituents are keen to see improvements. I was grateful to Kevin and Julian for showing me the site and for updating me on plans to deliver further infrastructure in Clwyd South and across the rest of North Wales."

These visits were arranged to show local MP’s how our infrastructure enables communities to benefit from mobile connectivity. Their support is critical for our Speed Up Britain campaign, so our industry can upgrade equipment and build new sites quickly and efficiently to keep societies connected.
