The latest news is terrible..!!
Waldon Telecom made two applications on behalf of O2 and Vodafone to plant six 'phone masts on the roof of Troyes House. Both applications were - quite correctly - turned down by Camden's planning department.
Waldon Telecom then referred the proposal to the Planning Inspectorate who - to everyone’s astonishment - overturned that decision. The Troyes House Residents Group submitted a full and detailed rebuttal of Waldon’s claims to the appeal inspector. Based on the inspector's published findings this dossier was completely ignored.
Whatever the planning Inspector may think, there are a number of reasons why Camden Council should withdraw permission for the development:
Camden Council says the Mayor of London wants enhanced connectivity. The Mayor of London controls TfL.
Finally - and most importantly -
Camden Council has the power to reverse this undemocratic decision and they should do so quickly, before any more damage is done to the lives of people living in Troyes House and the family homes surrounding it. The roof of Troyes House is being sold to O2 and Vodafone to raise funds. This was made perfectly clear to us by our then local councillor. Raising funds is good, but not when people's wellbeing is at stake.
You can help to get this proposal thrown out by highlighting your concerns in the local press and also on social media and contacting your local councillors. Details are on the How you can help page on this site.
