Michael Lyons writes: I’ve just noticed this planning application on the Borough Council’s Planning Portal.
Application Details – Ref: 21/00560/FUL – Removal of existing monopole and other ancillary equipment and replacement with 25m high high lattice tower with installation of 18 antennas and 3 dishes. Relocation of 3 antennas, 2 dishes and other ancillary equipment onto new tower, installation of an equipment cabinet, 2 ERS racks and ancillary equipment and installation of 2.4m high palisade fence.
The current mast is situated behind Bramcote Leisure Centre and the proposal more or less doubles the current installation’s footprint as well as creating a more visually intrusive taller and wider grey steel structure into our valued green open space. The proposals are somewhat mute upon the amount of groundwork required to level the site in preparation for laying the 5.25×5.25m concrete slab foundations and the tree works necessary on the surrounding mature oak trees which overhang the site!
These pdfs give the existing and proposed elevations:
I assume this is a public consultation but there is no Consultation Period recorded. Could one of our councillors advise?
