‘VISUAL CLUTTER’: Council rejects controversial plans for ‘obtrusive’ phone mast in Pinner

 Published on: 8th December 2022   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

Pinner residents who fought against an application for a phone mast are rejoicing after Harrow Council rejected the plans.

Residents banded together last month to write objection letters against the installation of a new telecoms mast and associated equipment cabinets on sites in North Way and Moss Lane. The 20-metre 5G mast would have been five metres higher than any surrounding trees and would have stood opposite the listed building The Fives Court.

Harrow Council argued that the proposed telecoms cabinets would result in “visual clutter”.

Their refusal document stated: “The proposed telecommunications pole, by reason of its siting, excessive height and prominent location, would be visually obtrusive in the street scene, to the detriment of the character and appearance of the area.”
