Proposed Cell Mast in front of Wivenhoe on the marshes
Anyone living in Lower Wivenhoe with
any kind of a view of the Marshes should view the appeal lodged
against the refusal for planning permission for a mast. It can
be found here:
The Planning application is here:
As well as having been lodged without the majority of people on this side of the river having been advised, it will also be something of an eyesore as the illustrations of it have been taken in a way that is highly misleading and bathe the lower part of the town in high levels of RF energy.
As to whether the latter consideration is a real concern is up for debate - the people that want the mast say it's safe, but there is evidence that suggests that constant exposure over an extended period may not be, especially where children are concerned.
Wivenhoe and Fingringhoe Councils will object, but as is often the case, weight of numbers is likely to be significant so if it does concern you, please add your voice to the protests. The inspectorate will only consider material planning grounds which is essentially things like height, location, land use and procedure, but if you do have other concerns, make them known anyway as there are people who are minded to to agree that it may not be safe
