Cossington Parish Council

Proposed Mobile Phone Base Station Approved

18th October 2016 (Update: Jan 2017)

back to NEWS PAGE >>

A full planning application has recently been raised for the earlier proposals to site a new mobile phone base station on the eastern edge of the Parish (about 120 metres north of Middle Road) .

 

The Sedgemoor District Council planning application number is 22/16/00013. Full details can be found by entering this number into Sedgemoor's OnLine Planning service at http://www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/planning_online .

 

The application is a joint venture between Vodafone and Telefonica (O2).

 

The closing date for any comments to Sedgemoor is Friday, 23rd December.

 

January update: This application has been approved by the Local Authority. Suggestions to use tree camouflage on the mast were considered but eventually rejected as it would need a larger and hence more visible mast than the slim lattice type approved.
