Telecommunications Facility Siting

As telecommunications companies strive to develop their national networks, the special issues that surround securing land use permits for these projects are a constant source of concern. Nossaman has extensive experience representing wireless telecommunications companies before city and county zoning boards, planning commissions and city councils.

We work with planning consultants, city staffs, RF engineers and site development specialists at the administrative level in jurisdictions throughout California to help our telecommunications clients secure permits for the siting of telecommunications facilities on both private property and in the public right of way.

In cases where these facility siting matters must be resolved in state and federal courts, we draw upon our broad knowledge in the area of land use litigation to assist our clients. Nossaman has substantial expertise in the law of telecommunications facility siting, including the federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, the California Public Resources Code, jurisdiction of the Public Utilities Commission, and local ordinances.
