Green Party Oppose Phone Mast
We oppose the application on the following grounds:
1. IMPACT ON LOCAL ENVIRONMENT - The mast and accompanying street furniture will be intrusive in an area of historical and landscape importance in the development of 'Metroland' and unlike the
masts at Salmon Street/Fryent Way, NW9 in the same area will be visible from local housing. They will make a detrimental impact on a well used recreational green space. We are also concerned about the impact of the magnetic field from the mast on this important local habitat
2. ENHANCING OPEN SPACES - We support Brent Council's policy of improving open spaces in terms of both amenity and biodiversity. The erection of a mast would be contrary to this policy.
2. ALTERNATIVES Vodafone appear to have made no effort to ascertain whether alternative sites with less impact are available.
