Installation of 2 x 20 metre high 5G towers at Monton Bowling and Social Club

Dear Neighbour, My family live on Park Road in Monton and our house and many others face Monton Bowling and Social Club, the proposed site of a new 5G tower, wholly opposed by the club committee. I am not anti 5G roll out but my further enquiries have led to the following: the  Development Management at Salford City Council state that mobile network providers have been looking to upgrade their existing apparatus to 20 metres high towers with huge ugly antennae to enable 5g coverage.  In order to support the roll out, the government has expanded what is known as permitted development rights and this means certain things can be done without any permission being needed by the local planning authority and in other cases a slimmed down version of applying for planning permission is required known as prior approval where only siting and appearance can be considered. Clarke Telecom, on behalf of Cornerstone Telecommunications Infrastructure Ltd, have written to the local planning authority to state their intention to submit a prior approval application.  

Yes 5G does need to roll out but the 5G towers will be seen above our houses and our trees – from your gardens. It's a no brainer that placing a 5G tower near a healthy residential area has a direct correlation with house prices dipping. Estimates range from 5% to 25% depending how close it is.  Who wants to buy a house with a back-garden view of a close 5 G tower?  The bowling green and surrounding trees are a peaceful and unspoilt spot but the new apparatus will be a local landmark and oppressively tower above the trees and houses. Towers can be placed on traffic islands or pavements and don't need to be placed in a highly sought after and characterful residential area. It is an atrocity that they should be placed bang in between the two conservation areas of Ellesmere Park and Monton Green. Visually the towers will be incongruous, permanently destroy our beautiful neighbourhood and there are other sites that would have less impact. I really care about our community area and want to protect it. Signing this petition would really help this cause and show a united community
