Telephone Mast - Planning Application 2014/3905

Update: Elmbridge Borough Council Planning Department has refused this planning application as it "...would appear to be an alien addition that would appear incongruous with the character of the area and the street scene due to its disproportionate height and prominant location...". Full details on the EBC Planning Department website.

This planning application (Ref No. 2014/3905) is to site a 12.5m high telephone mast at the corner of Miles Lane and Ashcroft Park. This is very much a residential area.

You may recall that a similar application was turned down by the Planning Inspector in 2013 who stated "I do not consider that the operational needs of the Appellant and Co-Operator, outweigh the significant harm to the character and appearance of the area that would result from siting a column of this height in this particular location." What has changed regarding this location?

There are, to date, over 70 letters of objection. Closing date for comments is 24th October 2014 and should be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots.
