Mobile phone antenna plan for parish church tower

Mobile phone antennas aimed at improving mobile phone coverage in Pudsey could be installed at Grade II Listed Pudsey Parish Church.

Plans have been submitted by UK mobile infrastructure services company Cornerstone for the replacement and upgrade of four antennas and the installation of four new antennas in the church tower, off Church Lane.

A planning statement accompanying the application states: “The applicant has sought to cause as little impact as possible to fabric and architectural qualities of the listed building in addition to the character and setting of the surrounding conservation area.

“Church towers provide suitable spaces for housing telecommunications apparatus as they provide an ideal height over surrounding built forms. Unfortunately in this particular case the tower does not lend itself to having the antennas positioned internally within the tower.

“The antennas will therefore be positioned externally but will be coloured to match the tower to reduce their visual appearance.”

The plans can be viewed in full here.

The church was consecrated by the Archbishop of York on 30 August 1824.
