Rejected petition Stop construction of 5G masts in residential and environmentally sensitive areas
Stop Permitted Development, which allows phone companies to erect 5G or future phone masts, in residential / environmentally sensitive areas. Phone companies should replace and share existing masts on used brownfield sites rather than new sites. Councils and residents should always be consulted.
A mobile company recently applied to construct a 20m 5G mast on a residential green space impacting the local amenity. This green space includes several mature ash and lime trees, as well as protected wildlife.
Residents raised 191 objections, plus an objection from the Council Tree Officer, resulting in the application being rejected.
However, under the new Planning Bill, neither the council nor the residents will be allowed to raise objections to developments of this kind.

Why was this petition rejected?
It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.
Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action.
We're not sure exactly what you'd like the Government or Parliament to do. We're not sure if you want a ban on 5G masts in residential and environmentally sensitive areas, or for people to have the right to block proposals.
You could start a new petition explaining clearly what you would like the Government or Parliament to do.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
