Network operators EE and Three’s plans to install a 5G mobile phone mast on top of a Muswell Hill secondary school has been rejected by Haringey Council. The decision was based on concerns that parents had not been informed and that ward councillors weren’t told about the proposals for a 7.5metre roof tower, six antennae and four large dishes.
In their submission, the companies stated: "Mobile networks are ubiquitous throughout the UK. It is an expectation that an individual can connect whenever and wherever they so require.
"As this is an existing base station and the amendments are minor in nature, this is the most preferable site. As such no other options have been considered."
Cllr Allessandra Rossetti said: "Councillors were contacted by concerned parents on the last day of the consultation period.
"I am aware that the application mentions pre-consultation with local councillors and their lack of objections, but before last Friday we hadn't received any communication from the applicant, either via email or post.
"Parents we have been in touch with told us they were not aware of the application either."
