Cllr Brian Holmes calls for plans for large phone mast to be rejected

Cllr Brian Holmes (Shirley West Ward) is campaigning alongside local residents to try and stop a very large phone mast being sited outside the Lodge Pub, Yardley Wood Road — near to local homes, a nursery and a primary school.

Cllr Holmes has already delivered a petition to SMBC on behalf of local residents, which contains hundreds of signatures and he plans to deliver more signatures in time for the planning meeting, which takes place on December 6th.

Brian said: “I will be speaking against this planning application at the meeting. I believe this mast is far too intrusive and would impact adversely on the quality of life of local residents."

The strength of feeling of local residents has been demonstrated as over 400 residents have signed the petition and a large number have emailed the council with their objections.

We now await the decision.
