meg plumb made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Carmarthenshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Carmarthenshire Council,
This is another FOI request regarding 5G.
My last request was answered by Julie John (information officer):
'In response, we do not hold information relevant to your request as
Carmarthenshire County Council does not have a 5G strategy.'
In your manifesto, page.12 (2nd paragraph) it says;
'We will continue to press the UK Government to ensure 4G mobile reception for at least 95% of Carmarthenshire customers by the end of 2018, and the rollout of 5G mobile reception by the end of the term. We will also engage with the Welsh Government’s consultation on the relaxing of planning laws concerning taller masts to tackle ‘notspots’, areas with no mobile signal, in Carmarthenshire.'
1) What is your policy on the rollout of 5G?
2) What research have you got access to in regard to its safety to all life forms?
3) What discussions have you had with Telecommunication companies in regard to 5G?
4) Have you granted permission/s for the erection of transmitters for 5G?

Yours faithfully,
