An application has been submitted to install a 5G mast near the Gallows Corner roundabout.

Havering Council has received a proposal for the installation of a 20m high pole on land next to 12 Straight Road.

The application is by CK Hutchison Networks (UK) Ltd, while the mast would be operated by telecoms company Three.

The plans outline a proposed position as being just to the right of the open entry to the housing development, with three additional equipment cabinets also included in the application.

For context, the application states that the buildings next to the planned mast site are 11 metres in height while an adjacent tree is 13m tall.
