A forum for TCF Members and Local Government to discuss local government issues and to co-ordinate mutually beneficial activity


The telecommunications industry recognises the value in maintaining a mutually beneficial relationship with local government.

The primary drivers of this need are to improve the investment and deployment of telecommunications services for all telecommunications providers by addressing issues with regards to the Resource Management Act, access to roading corridors, access to council assets, rating policies and national policy statements and mechanism.


To provide a mechanism for industry, local government and central government to engage on matters relating to telecommunications infrastructure policy and planning.

If anyone from local government would like to discuss any local government related issues with the TCF, feel free to contact us.
