ANOTHER PHONE MAST APPLICATION - ANOTHER REFUSAL
O2 applied to St Helens Council to install several masts / dishes within the existing chimney of Rainhill Forge on the Warrington Road. But the application would have also seen the height of the chimney increase by 4 metres to house the equipment. Local residents were having none of it and wanted to contest the application.
With a little guidance from their local councillors, they amassed over 180 signatures of local residents to emphasise the strength of feeling against the proposals. In total about 200 seperate objections were lodged with planning department.
THE APPLICATION WAS REFUSED
