Eight Metre Phone Mast Planned For Public Footpath
Telecoms company looks to site mast close to Gunnersbury station
An application to install an eight metre high telecommunications mast on a public footpath has been received by Hounslow Council’s planning department.
If approved, the mast with three antennae and ‘associated equipment cabin’, would be sited just off the Chiswick High Road on the footpath by Gunnersbury station.
The application was made by telecoms company Waldon. Formed in 1998, Waldon is the largest independent company of its kind and works with all the UK's major mobile telecommunications operators.
According to the Council’s website, the ‘appropriate publicity has been carried out and where appropriate neighbours have been consulted’.
Anyone wishing to comment on this application can do so here.
Speaking in February about O2's search for alternative sites, one of the campaigners told ChiswickW4.com "We are concerned as to where these alternative sites may be located. Our principle concerns are that the mast should be unobtrusive and as far from residences and schools as possible."
