Dudden Hill residents have successfully campaigned against 5G mobile masts in their area. Neighbours came together and lodged an appeal to their local council to prevent the installation of an 18-metre 5G mast with a wrap around and three cabinets on Cullingworth Road citing the height of the mass, loss of footpath space, and security concerns for the property next door as the cabinets would facilitate jumping over the residential back wall.
Jackie Morrell, of Fleetwood Road, said: “It was a great relief to learn that the council had taken in all our many concerns about the proposed installation and has refused approval.
“It is a very difficult time for all of us now coping with the pandemic and this extra stress has been awful for us and our neighbours throughout the area. We are not against the technology but it must benefit everyone and not infringe upon anyone’s quality of life.”
Lead petitioner Kishan Patel, added: “Once we were made aware of the proposed plans on August 18, we took it upon ourselves to inform and engage the local community, including the church, school, and residents of Fleetwood House.
“The overwhelming response was opposition to the proposed location of the mast, along with questions as to why other, more suitable locations were not firstly considered.
