The proposed changes to IR 2030 are contained in Annex 3 of the document
you linked to. I pulled up IR 2030 from the Ofcom website:


As of yet this document does not contain the proposed changes. I'm not
familiar with the process for chaning regulations in the UK, but based
on section 1.6 it sounds like the document expresses that Ofcom made a
decision to amend the regulations, but that the document itself does not
have the effect of actually putting those changes into effect. If you
are more familiar with the process and I have misunderstood something,
please clarify.

You are correct though that this range should be 5725-5850 MHz. Seems it
should also be NO-OUTDOOR.
