French term or phrase: plans « concessionnaires »
I'm not sure which of several interpretations to put on "concessionnaires" : I tend to think it's land owners who concede land to the developer. Any thoughts?

(public) utilities plans
Explanation:
I've just had this in my own document, and the concessionnaires are the operators of what have up till now been know as 'public utilities' (though many have recently been privatized!) — the electricity, gas, telephone, and water supply authorities, for example.

They have a 'concession' for their services to pass across your land — though actually, I don't think that's why they're called concessionnaires, I think it's more to do with the fact that they have the concession for providing the utility in question.
