Plans for a 15-metre high 5G mobile phone mast and cabinet have been knocked back by council planners.
CK Hutchison Networks (UK) Ltd wanted to site the new mast on Ganners Way, opposite St Margaret’s church, in a bid to boost mobile phone coverage in the area.
But a report from a council planning officer raised concerns over siting and its appearance and said:
“The proposal will be highly visible within the locality and appear overly dominant within its context of two-storey buildings (residential and ecclesiastical). Moreover, it sits within a wholly residential area and directly adjacent to housing.”
