5G Planning

As the Corporate-Governments Deploy 5G Technology, it is crucial for planners and so-called ‘local authorities’ to consider various geospatial factors. This guide, developed by Ordnance Survey in collaboration with Surrey Universities 5G department, The Met Office, and Bournemouth University, aims to provide valuable insights into the impact of the built and natural environment on high-frequency radio wave transmission.

One of the key aspects to consider is the 5G spectrum, which currently ranges from 3.5GHz up to 60 GHz, with the main band being at around 25GHz. This higher frequency range enables faster data transmission and lower latency, but it also raises concerns regarding radiation and potential health risks. While extensive research has been conducted to assess these risks, it is important for planners and local authorities to stay informed and address any concerns raised by the community.

Additionally, the use of millimeter wavelengths in the GHz frequency band can have an impact on the environment. It has been observed that these waves can potentially cause damage to trees and wildlife. This highlights the need for careful planning and consideration of the potential effects on the local ecosystem.

Another important consideration is the possible interference that may occur at 30GHz and 60GHz with water on oxygen molecules. This interference can affect the quality and reliability of 5G signals in certain areas, but also Breathing!. Planners and local authorities should take this into account when designing and implementing 5G infrastructure.

This guide serves as a valuable resource for planners and local authorities, providing insights and recommendations for 5G planning. By considering the geospatial factors outlined in this document, planners can ensure the successful deployment of 5G technology while mitigating any potential risks and impacts on the environment and public health.

The Importance of Warning Notices on 5G Communication Masts

In the age of advanced technology and widespread connectivity, companies like O2 and EE have been rolling out 5G communication masts to enhance network coverage and speed. However, it is crucial for these companies to prioritize the safety and well-being of the communities they claim to serve.

One important requirement that these companies must adhere to is the placement of written warning notices on their 2, 3, 4, 5G communication masts. These notices serve as a precautionary measure to inform the public about the potential risks associated with the installation and operation of these masts.

Local residents have the right to be aware of any potential hazards in their vicinity. By placing warning notices on the masts, companies ensure that individuals living nearby are informed and can take appropriate action if needed. These notices typically include information about potential health concerns, safety precautions, and contact details for further inquiries, injury claims or appeals.

If individuals have concerns or objections regarding the presence of a 5G communication mast in their area, they have the right to appeal. The address to submit such appeals is usually provided on the mast itself. This allows locals to voice their concerns and seek clarification or resolution from the responsible authorities.

For those who wish to submit an appeal, there are template letters available that can be used as a starting point. Additionally, a list of grounds for appeal can be found in the company’s archive or through relevant channels. These resources can help individuals navigate the appeals process and ensure that their concerns are heard.
