Do you require a Pre-construction TV reception survey for your planning application? Or a TV Distribution system for your new development?


As part of UK planning law, larger proposed building developments, wind turbines and large structures often require a survey to support a planning application. 

Pre-construction television reception surveys

SCS Technologies Ltd is fully equipped, technically competent and fully insured to undertake your Pre-construction TV reception Survey; we have our own vehicle equipped with a 10meter telescopic mast, GPS and spectrum analyser.

  • A site survey is undertaken (measurement of existing TV signals), to ascertain the following elements;
  • Current signal levels from a number of test points;
  • Full detailed documentation showing predicted affected areas overlaid onto a map;
  • Photos showing local conditions and reception techniques;
  • Suitable mitigation measures.
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance

The Television and Radio Reception Mitigation Plan would contain detailed maps indicating possible areas of interference; details of the broadcast services available to those areas based on what is being received at the test locations, and detailed technical advice on suitable mitigation measures.

Post-construction television reception surveys

It is sometimes a requirement to undertake a TV reception survey after a building has been constructed, extended, a wind turbine or windfarm installed.

The post construction survey is undertaken using the same techniques as the Pre-construction survey analysing reception signals and advising of any mitigating measures.
