Telecoms Mast at the Keston Village Hall – Planning Application 16/01288

Dear Resident

We have been advised by Cllr Michael that this item will be on the agenda for Plans 1 Sub-committee this coming Thursday, 28th April. It is being recommended for refusal on the following grounds:

1. The proposal, by reason of its height, siting and design, would have a seriously detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the Keston Village Conservation Area and the openness of the Green Belt within which it would be sited, thereby contrary to Policies BE1, BE11, BE22 and G1 of the Unitary Development Plan, Supplementary Planning Guidance for the Conservation Area, Policies 7.4, 7.8 and 7.16 of the London Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework.

The item appears on List 4 of the Plans 1 agenda which means that it cannot be granted permission on Thursday evening, even if Members wish to do so. If Members were to be sympathetic to the plan, it would need to be deferred and then moved to List 2 of a future planning agenda (items meriting special consideration).

The applicants argue that the mast is needed to improve the 3G service and provide 4G service to the Keston Village area. It would be a shared site between Vodafone and Telefonica (02).

You can attend the meeting on Thursday evening, which begins at 7pm. It will be held in one of the Council committee rooms because the Council Chamber is being used for election preparations.

Regards
Hilary Ryder
