Get ready to see bigger and taller mobile phone masts.
When the masts first appeared there were fears the signals could harm children living or going to school close by.
Now some people strongly believe the upgraded 5G masts cause or spread Coronavirus.
But even supporters of mobile phones usually agree on one thing, that the masts are ugly and a blot on the landscape
The government quietly released the information that it has agreed to relax the rules on building or extending 5G masts.
Existing masts will be allowed to be “strengthened” without prior approval to enable them to be upgraded to the 5G network.
Radio equipment will also be allowed to be stored on sites without prior approval.
The height limit on masts will also be raised and they’ll be allowed to be placed on buildings near highways. However, these new masts will still need approval before they can be built.
