About the Programme
Infralink is led by infrastructure experts, the Scottish Futures Trust, and is funded by the Scotland 5G Centre. It has been established to improve the engagement between potential public sector landlords and mobile industry tenants.
To help the parties start off on a positive footing and accelerate negotiations, Infralink has established a number of tools that are balanced, transparent and work across different areas of Scotland.
A set of documents that will be a balanced starting point for negotiations and take account of current legislation.
A methodology and pricing table that builds on case law and recognises the impact of digital infrastructure as a tenant.
An online map-based shop window for public sector bodies interested in discussing connectivity in their area allowing them to set out the assets and terms up-front and drive the discussions based on data.
The tools apply to land, buildings and street assets as well as 4G, 5G and IoT technology and take account of the different needs of rural and urban areas.
Infralink believes that if the process of engagement between potential landlord and tenant is standardised as much as possible, then both sides will benefit from more efficient negotiations and more certainty. There are many across the UK who have already benefited from putting these principles into action.
