As I predicted, despite opposition at the pre-app consultation stage, Mono consultants on behalf of Voadafone and Telefonica have submitted a planning application for a telephone mast and ancillary equipment on Saughall Massie Road, close to the junction with Kingfisher Way.
Some people think I am anti mast, nothing could be further from the truth, like millions of people I rely on a mobile phone signal, however I am opposed to installations at what are clearly innappropriate locations, and this application is for just that.
This is a densely populated area, with lots of sheltered accommodation and a residential home close by, its on a main route and close to a bus stop. I have already had calls from local residents, all absolutely appalled at this application, objections are flooding in and a petition has already been started. I, along with my colleagues, Cllr Steve Williams and Cllr Simon Mountney am happy to support residents in opposing the application.
Should you wish to support or oppose this application you can do so by contacting the Council’s Planning Officer who is dealing with this application, Neil Williams. Neil can be emailed: firstname.lastname@example.org, Telephone: 0151 606 2138, or by writing to him at Cheshire Lines Building, Canning Street, Birkenhead, CH41 1ND ensuring you quote application number: ANT/11/01359. All representations need to be submitted by the 8th December, 2011.
