Satellite dishes

Find out more about satellite dishes for flats and houses.


If you live in a flat, you do not need to install your own satellite dish as the property should have a communal satellite dish already fitted that you are able to connect to.

To find out if your building already has a communal satellite dish, you should contact your Landlord Services Officer or the television provider you're interested in.


To install a satellite dish onto your property without planning permission, please check you meet all of the requirements for your building on the Planning Portal.

If you do not meet the requirements, you will need to apply for planning permission to install a satellite dish.

Apply for planning permission

If you do meet the requirements and do not need planning permission to install your satellite dish, please make sure to have it installed by an appropriately skilled person and remember to remove the dish and any cables when you move out of the property.
