Illegal Cell Masts In Edgemead (again)

If you’ve read the recent article in Tabletalk you will know that recently two masts were built illegally in Edgemead without the required plans. The mast at the Engen on the corner of Edgemead Drive and Bosmansdam has subsequently been removed, while the mast in Southdale Road remains. The applicant, Warren Petterson Planning, representing Telkom mobile, has only submitted plans for approval after the mast had been built.

The Edgemead Residents’ Association has actively canvassed the residents who received notice from the City for objections. We’d like to open this opportunity up to other residents as well. If you live in Edgemead and you would like to submit an objection you are welcome to use our objection letter or modify it as you see fit.

Objections can be sent in email to the District Manager on: Closing date is 6 July 2016.

For reference we have attached a number of documents:
Proposed Consent Use: ERF 20596, Goodwood (51 Southdale Road, Edgemead)
