A couple of months ago we were made aware, through a pre-application consultation document that Vodafone were considering submitting a planning application for a telephone mast near to Linear Park. I objected, as did many local residents. Despite those objection we have learned today that Mono Consultants has submitted a planning application on behalf of Vodafone for a ‘Telephone Mast, Antennae, Cabinet and Ancillary Equipment’ on the footpath adjacent to the Linear Park Area. Application number: ANT/10/00325.
We have asked that the application be taken out of delegated authority, which means that the decision to approve or refuse the application will be made by Wirral’s Planning Committee on Thursday 22nd April in a public hearing, at Wallasey Town Hall, Brighton Street, Wallasey CH44 8ED. The meeting starts at 6pm and is open to the public.
We think its a crazy application in a totally inappropriate location. The Council is spending £81,000 on refurbishing the childrens play area, and along come Vodafone who want to stick a mast and other equipment close to it.
We have already submitted our objections to the application. If you want to object you can do so by sending an email to the planning officer dealing with the application, email@example.com or, by writing to her at Cheshire Lines Building, Canning Street, Birkenhead, ensuring you quote: ANT/10/00325. All objections must be submitted by the 16th April.
