Bush Hill Park 20m phone mast – rejected

Many of you have contacted me to raise your concern about this planning application.

The proposal for a mobile phone mast at the junction of First Avenue and Queens Anne’s Place, opposite Bagshot Road has been refused planning permission. This is due to the impact of the proposal on the character and appearance of the Bush Hill Park Conservation Area.

One of the principle objections was the masts height, which would have been 60 feet (20 metres) high. This would have been taller than the mature trees in the area!

From listening to residents the objection was not against the principal of a new mast, given the increased importance of connectivity during Covid19. One suggestion was that a better location would be on the disused land at the Bush Hill Park station. Already communications masts have been installed there.
