Dear Folkestone & Hythe District Council,

Based on the fact that wifi i.e. 4g is banned in schools and colleges in France, because it is proven to be harmful to health and 5G is 10 times more powerful.

I want answers to the following

1. Is 5g being fitted in folkestone and hythe?

2. What research have you done on 5g to prove that 5g, is safe and not harmful to human, animal or plant life?

3. Are you fitting L E D street lamps?

4. Do these also have 5g microwave radiation?

5. What proof and research have you done to prove these are not harmful to life?

6. Are you planning to remove any trees in folkestone and hythe for the 5g?

7. How many trees are you going to remove in folkestone and hythe in the next 2 years?

Yours faithfully,


Folkestone & Hythe District Council
