I am pleased to say that the latest planning application for a telephone mast, made by Mono Consultants on behalf of Vodafone and o2 has been refused by Wirral’s Planning Department. You can read the refusal notice by clicking here. The application was for a 13.8 metre mast, cabinet and ancillary equipment on green belt land on Saughall Massie Road (close to the new slip road off the bypass).
When we learned of this application we immediately took it out of delegation so that the planning commmittee would have to make the decision and submitted our objections to the application.
We were then contacted by the head of Wirrals Planning Section and he asked if we would put the matter back into delegated authority because the officers were going to refuse the application as soon as the last date for representations had passed. Clearly we agreed to this in order to make sure we got a refusal sooner, rather than later.
