Recently a few bits of info have been circulating about a proposed 5G mast on the tiny bit of blossom filled green where the bus stop sits, where the crossing into the Albert Rec (Sunshine Garden Centre entrance)

I won't make any point in hiding the fact that I think this is a terrible idea. The potential long-term health effects that are just not known with this technology are just not worth the risk in an area chock full of family homes, 2 schools and a recreation ground. It will be an eye-sore, there are many documented cases of it affecting wildlife numbers etc. 

I suffer like everyone else with the patchy and problematic mobile coverage in the area, but nothing is worth 24/7 radiation this close to our homes and community and young and old brains and bodies!

  • I think planning permission for the proposed mast on Bedford Road was rejected simply on the basis of what it looked like. They would not consider any health concerns - I wonder if that has changed?

  • Thank you for posting, Carrie. This application keeps coming back every couple of years or so, the only difference being that the location selected differs slightly. I think the site chosen this time is known as the Harcourt Triangle, and it is a really valued and lovely spot.

    • Ah, that's super interesting to know it comes back every couple of years. That makes me hopeful that this too will be deemed a totally mad spot. The Harcourt Triangle! who knew!?

    • Here's a link to the previous occasion this came up. Another totally mad spot selected..
