Plans submitted for another 5G mast on a Southampton street

PLANS have been submitted for the construction of another 5G mast in Southampton.

CK Hutchison Networks (UK) Ltd has applied for a building permit to install new telecommunications equipment on the grounds of Raymond Road, next to the Atherley Bowling Club.

The new equipment would include a 15m high monopoly and equipment cabinets as well as ancillary works to facilitate the zones 5G network.

It comes just weeks after Network Three applied for a building permit for the creation of a 5G mast in front of Sainsbury’s Local store in nearby Hill Lane.

In the application documents it is stated: “There is now a need to upgrade the CK Hutchison Networks (UK) Ltd (Three) network to provide improved coverage and capacity, especially for 5 services.

“The pole height has been reduced to the absolute minimum capable of providing the required new essential 5G coverage.

“There are existing tall vertical columns (street lamps), helping the monopoly blend into the street scene. The nearest residential property is not directly on the site.

But so far, since the request was submitted to city council on September 6, four objections have been raised with people voicing concerns about the “intrusive” location, the visual appearance of the mast, as well as “potential health problems”.

Area city councilor Satvir Kaur said: “As Shirley’s city councilor, I fully support the overwhelming opposition of local residents to this new 5G Mast app.

“As before, I hope the planning panel rejects this request as it did for something similar on Winchester Road.”

Residents can express themselves in a consultation that ends on October 8.
