Plans for a 65ft tall mobile phone mast on grass outside McDonald’s at Cardigan Retail Park have been refused by council planners.

Applicant Cornerstone had applied for the 5G mast, along with six antennae and three cabinets, on grass outside McDonald’s the junction of Kirkstall Road and Evanston Avenue.

But council planners had concerns about the mast’s impact on the nearby residential houses. In refusing the ap[plicvayion, planners said: “It is therefore considered that the siting of this mast coupled with a height well above that of anything else in the immediate streetscene will impact upon visual amenity and the character of the area, contrary to local and national policies.”

The plans can be viewed in full here.
