Dear Ms Bond,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 9284
 
Thank you for your email below.  Your request was received on 30th June
2020 and you will be sent a response within 20 working days (of receipt)
in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000/ Environmental

In particular they understand that resources, whether they are finances or

penalising public authorities for prioritising other areas or adapting
their usual approach during this extraordinary period.
 
Therefore while the Council will make every effort to comply with the
Statutory Requirements you may experience understandable delays when
making information rights requests during the pandemic.
 
Yours sincerely

Dear Ms Bond,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 9284
 
Further to the acknowledgement below, I can respond to your Freedom of
Information Act 2000 request received on 30^th June 2020 as follows:
 
Public Health England (PHE) has issued guidance on health and 5G,
concluding that a) while it is possible that there may be a small increase
in overall exposure to radio waves when 5G is added to an existing
network, or in a new area, the overall exposure is expected to remain low
relative to guidelines, and b) as such, there should be no consequences
for public health. PHE is committed to monitoring the evidence applicable
to 5G and other radio technologies, and to revising its advice, should
that be necessary.
 
Please see attached.
 
 
The Council  does not own or insure a 5G mast.
 
For further information I recommend you re-direct your enquiry to
Oxfordshire County Council,  Programme Manager for Better Broadband for
Oxfordshire and leads the Oxfordshire Digital Infrastructure Strategy team
,via the following link, as I believe they will be better placed to answer
your request.

email: [2][email address] or The Digital Infrastructure Team:
[3][email address]
 
or by post: Freedom of Information Team, County Hall,Oxford.OX1 1ND
 
If you disagree with any part of the response to your request, you are
