Installation of 1 no. 20m telecommunications streetworks pole, 1 no. equipment cabinet, 1 no. meter cabinet and associated ancillary development.

Oxford Civic Society made an objection when this proposal was originally put forward under 20/00974/T56. We remain of the opinion that to allow this application would be an abdication of the City Council’s legal obligations to protect the historic centre of Oxford. The application lacks information on why this Monopole, which is twice as high as the trees along the road, is needed at this location. Have the alternatives been considered?
