Dear Warwickshire County Council,

There seems to be an increasing number of what appear to be small cell antenna and tri cams popping up all over Bedworth.

The public are aware of new cctv cams, but the public has not been informed about the new antenna looking objects.

An example is shown in this picture

https://pasteboard.co/Nzl8uhtPSR0V.jpg

More examples can be found outside the auto car wash in Bedworth, outside chip king in Bedworth and outside St Francis school in Bedworth.

Could you help us understand what they actually are? As no public consultation or public announcement seems to have occurred regarding these new objects appearing on our lampposts.

1. What are they
2. What will they be used for
3. Have you consulted the public
4. Was any planning consideration undertaken
5. Was any safety regarding (EHS ~ Electro Magnetic Hypersensitivity) of children considered
6. How many in total are planned for Bedworth
7. Will the RFR (Radio Frequency Radiation) be measured at any point in time
8. Was the cumulative effect of multiple antenna RFR considered before installation
9. Are they emitting 5g or connected to a 5g network now or in the future
10. Do these antenna form part of a smart grid network
11. Are you creating a smart grid network in Bedworth now or in the future
12. Do they collect information from the public/ publics devices in any way
13. What information from the public/publics devices do they collect
14. Where and how can the public request information that may be collected by these antenna / possible smart grid network
15. What is the energy usage per small cell, does this adhere to sustainability / energy efficiency targets
16. Who pays for the electric

Thank you kindly, we have asked a similar question to our local council, but believe you are in charge of infrastructure in Bedworth as well?

Yours faithfully,

Nuneaton and Bedworth Community Association
