Luke Pollard MP has written to the planning department at Plymouth City Council to voice his objection to plans to erect an 18 metre-high mobile phone mast in Peverell.
As the area’s Member of Parliament, Luke has received a great deal of correspondence from local residents who firmly oppose these plans. In his letter to the Council, Luke cites the Council’s lack of ‘meaningful engagement’ with constituents as a key motivation behind his objection, and lists his four principal reasons for opposing the plans.
Luke hosted a public meeting via Zoom last week alongside Cllr Jeremy Goslin, at which local residents were invited to offer their thoughts on the plans to build this mast at the junction of Home Park Avenue in Peverell.
Luke Pollard MP wrote on his Facebook page:
“We do need better phone signal across Plymouth but these masts are just too big for a residential area.
“We recently managed to block one of these horrible eyesores from being built in Morice Town, and now we’re ready to do it again. Hopefully this time, the phone companies will get the message.”
