Plans for a 5G mass in High Wycombe have been met with fierce objections from nearby residents.

Buckinghamshire Council is still in deliberation over the application, which has been submitted by CK Hutchinson.

If successful, a 15 metre tall monopole will be constructed in Daws Hills Lane.

The Phase 8 monopole will have a wraparound cabinet at the base and will mean associated ancillary works too.

Many locals living in the area have already objected with many claiming it would impact people’s health and well-being.

In recent years the Pine Trees estate has been built in the road and some also have said it was against the drawn up Daws Hill neighbourhood plan.

CDS Planning and Development Consultancy has written to the council saying the plans are “contrary to policies set out in the Local Plan and the adopted Daws Hill Neighbourhood Area”.

Emma Franks said: “This is situated in close proximity of homes and families, particularly young families in the Pine Trees estate.

“It would irresponsible for the health of those families to place the monopole in the proposed location.

“The estate is also set in woodlands with many protected trees making it a beautiful place to live - it would detract from the area's carefully planned aesthetics.”

Joanne Bracchi called the mast “ugly” and had concerns it would “impact” house prices as “people do not want to live near these masts due to health concerns”.

Abigael Akinla added: “This beautiful Pine Trees estate was carefully planned and set in woodlands with many protected trees.

“Your planned work especially at the entrance of the estate will destroy the beauty of this estate and impact on the property value.”

The residents heard about the plans from their local councillor Lesley Clarke OBE who notified them that planning had been applied for.

Peter Clark said: “Having a planning application for 15 meter monopole effectively in my front garden, I would have expected to have been contacted directly about this matter.

“Apart from being an eyesore and on a very busy main road there are numerous more suitable locations for this monopole than its planned location. "

He added: “In its current location it would expose the residents of Daws Hill and Pine Trees to high levels of transmitted radiation, which is potentially detrimental to human health.”
