Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
Can you please supply evidence that Wirral Council have taken stringent measures on assessing health and safety risks of 4g and 5g transmitting antenna they are now allowing Mobile companies Carte Blanche to establish across Wirral?. Thankyou.
Dear Mr Barnes,
Thank you for your recent FOI request, submitted under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. Our response is as follows:
The Local Planning Authority cannot take health considerations into
account when determining mast proposals.
All proposals for telecommunications development should be submitted with
an International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)
Certificate. This certificate confirms that the mast meets the guidelines
for public exposure. Beyond this, the health effects in relation to the
development or concerns about them, cannot be considered further by the
Local Planning Authority.
Public Health England advises the UK government departments and others on
standards of protection for exposure to ionising and non-ionising
radiation. They offer expert advice on the health implications relating to
human exposure to electromagnetic fields, drawing upon the most up-to-date
Wirral Council would like to thank you for your patience.
I trust this information assists with your enquiries.
