Judicial Review, London. The December 2023 EECC submission ‘Objectors Rights’ AC-2023-LON-003728 is waiting for a judge to be appointed.

The Directive EU 2018/1972 further asserts that LPAs were assigned EECC competent authority status as soon as the EECC was agreed, and that assignment was direct under EECC Recital 22. As such they must be made competent to risk assess Telco applications in situ.

Please support the case via the gofundme page as they need to cover their costs to continue with this vital challenge.

Smart Poles- A heads up Smart poles are being trialled to deliver 4G and 5G. They are replacing telegraph poles and will come under permitted development.

https://www.theregister.com/2024/03/19/virgin_media_says_smart_poles

“The news comes mere days after Britain’s Digital Infrastructure Minister asked all telecoms operators to stop deploying new telegraph poles and to share existing ones wherever possible.”

Digital Infrastructure minister Julia Lopez said new poles should only be installed “after ensuring that appropriate community engagement has taken place.”” It begs the question: What does “appropriate community engagement” actually mean??

Mitcham residents win battle against EE phone mast as council says it would destroy area’s character

There were 4 reasons for refusal, 2 of them we could learn from and apply if appropriate in the future :

“…by reason of the absence of a flood risk assessment and its siting in an area identified to be at risk of ground water flooding, has failed to demonstrate that flood risk is not increased elsewhere and that the development accords with the requirements of the NPPF para 167. The proposal is thereby considered to be contrary to, in particular, the NPPF and Merton Sites and Policies Plan Policy DM F1.”

” The proposal, by reason of its siting, proximity to trees and in the absence of sufficient arboricultural information, has failed to demonstrate that the scheme would safeguard the health and longevity of all adjacent trees to the detriment of biodiversity, the visual amenity of the locality and thus fail to preserve or enhance the setting, character and appearance of the conservation area. The scheme is thereby contrary to the NPPF and, in particular policies DM O2, DM D1, DM D2, DM D4 and DM D6 of the Merton Sites and Policies Plan 2014 and policies G6 and G7 of the London Plan.

Letter 3 here puts notice to councils when non existent Telco companies are listed on ICNIRP certificates, thereby invalidating the application.

The major issue is not the LEDs themselves necessarily but how they have been/are being deployed and used.  To a significant extent it’s a problem that is caused by strange product specification decisions rather than the tech itself.

The 5 main points in the UK EECC Judicial Review are strictly procedural:

  1. The right to challenge exists
  2. This challenge meets the formal requirements and has been submitted within time
  3. The challenge contains advocated remedies which are within our rights and embedded in law
  4. LPAs have to be equipped to fully independently carry out their duty as EECC competent authorities
  5. This duty, and all it entails, has to be made clear to LPAs so they can be effective and transparent.

This Hansard debate is raising some issues. “That this House has considered the impact of 5G mast installations on communities in Greater Manchester.” The debate covers the powers given to telecommunication companies to instal infrastructure on and around a public highway in residential areas, and covers the roll-out of 5G and wireless broadband through masts, cabinets and telegraph poles across Greater Manchester. For Oldham, that includes installations primarily by IX Wireless, BT and Vodafone.
