Langford 5G Mast Site Ruled Unsuitable

The proposed 5G mast would look the same as this one in west Bicester.

The 5G telecom tower proposed for Peregrine Way has failed to win approval of Cherwell District Council and is being refused planning permission. Council officers say the mast would bring ‘demonstrable harm to visual amenity’ and cause detriment to living conditions for nearby residents.

We don’t yet know whether the telecoms firm that wishes to build the mast to improve coverage here will make any alternative proposal or whether it might appeal the decision to refuse it at that spot.

The LVCA was among the organisations and people who objected to the 16m tall mast being placed at the chosen spot and suggested consideration was given to putting it somewhere else on Langford Village.
