Lack of respect for us?: The applicant did not feel all of the local schools within range were worth consulting, which would have been expected practice.

The proposal does not contain a risk assessment given the known evidence of dangers and the fact that the technology has not been tested. It does not give expected technical details like the masts’ power or the safe distance required (‘exclusion zone’)

Visual impact: The proposed mast would be well above the height of the buildings and trees in the area. It would stick out like a sore thumb, causing anxiety in a normally relaxed setting.

This is totally out of keeping with the ambience of the Bishop’s Park conservation area and would detract from the view from the neighbouring Colehill Gardens conservation area.

It will affect property values for those close to it – assuming that they can sell at all.

Conservation:  Trees within range would also suffer the harmful effects of radiation. They are a key part of the character of the area and provide environmental benefits.

International studies show that they would be harmed by radiation levels already being recorded against masts in our Borough. Our Local Plan gives priority to conservation.

Mast radiation is also harmful to pollinators, such as bees (Video).

Health and children’s safety: Several homes, schools and nurseries will be within range. Not least our much-loved Bishop’s Park recreation area where families relax and children play.

The mast and its cabinets would be a distraction to drivers on Bishop’s Ave when they need to concentrate on possible hazards. At 5’8” / 1.75m high, the cabinets could block the view of children to drivers, and vice versa.

Joshua Pearce of the University of Western Ontario is not ‘anti-mast’, being a shareholder of a telecoms infrastructure company. However, citing technical studies on the effects of mast radiation on children, he urges that masts should be at least 500m / 1,640ft from schools.

Equally aware of the danger, the state government in New Hampshire, USA, have moved to keep masts the same distance from schools, playgrounds and care homes.

This is important as children's bodies are still developing and they are more vulnerable to mast radiation effects. A Chief Medical Officer has called for minimising their exposure.

(To date, fortunately mast radiation readings in the Fulham Palace Rd area have been some of the lowest taken in the borough. Elsewhere readings already peak at well above safety limits – and are rising. Example snapshots here, more information on request.)



5.558V/m outside the Care

Home, Farm Lane. Worse since a new mast.

(left) 4.724V/m outside

Ibis Hotel, Lillie Rd

3.999V/m outside Thomas’s

Day School, Hugon Rd (Residents recently stopped the proposer putting rooftop masts close to the school.)


These figures are all well above internationally-recognised limits for prolonged exposure

Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Resolution 1815 (2011) Final version

The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment’ calls to

8.2.1. set preventive thresholds for levels of long-term exposure to microwaves in all indoor areas in accordance with the precautionary principle, not exceeding 0.6 volts per  metre,  and in the medium term to reduce it to 0.2 volts per metre;

The worst figure is nearly ten times the limit – we don’t need any more masts, thanks!


Not really needed: 5G is already available in the area for those who want it. 

To approve the mast proposal would effectively appear to compromise H&F Council’s statutory duty of care: "preventing impairment to children's health or development".  Time to remind the Council of its promise in its recent Annual Report sent to Council Tax payers: “Keeping residents safe is our No 1 priority”.

Please make sure you at least object to the visual impact of the mast – it would tower over and dominate the area, and wouldn’t look right from the conservation areas.

The unwanted mast radiation will not be good for the health of adults, children or trees in the area. To approve it would undermine the Council’s statutory duty of preventing impairment to children's health or development.

NB Comments from the public are not routinely shown.

The requested deadline for objections is Wed 27 July, but please get yours in now.








The Say No To 5G campaign in H&F was set up in 2019 to stop the spread of mast radiation that’s bad for us, animals and the environment. We are active locally, spreading the word and lobbying decision-makers. We have recently released a short, readable pamphlet for H&F Council.

We also support the important crowd-funded national legal action - the appeal is still open for donations
