We have been asked by the Parish Council to publish the following –

The Peak District National Park Planning committee has rejected this Planning Application.

The reason given was that

“The proposed installation by reasons of its height and exposed position would appear as an intrusive feature in this open countryside location, detrimental to the visual amenities of the area.”

No further public consultation had taken place as the application was regarded as a “permitted development”.

Further details can be found here

It seems likely that the Parish Council will be asked to comment on the Planning Application at its meeting on Wednesday the 19th of July.

any comments on this proposal should be sent to the Parish Council clerk, Andrew Martin

With the Parish Council meeting on Wednesday discussing feedback received and possible next steps I’m a little concerned that many people may have missed the information posted here on the blog as these posts have now disappeared down the page.

I think it’s worth pointing to the information concerning the proposal and also issues and concerns raised in comments on the blog.

The Council website pages has a comprehensive set of information concerning the plans which can be found here

A number of people have expressed concerns to us and have quoted the Mast Sanity site as a good starting point for researching possible negative consequences of a mast so close to the village. Their information on masts can be found here

Mast Sanity and other research expresses concerns regarding health issues for residents within 400m of a mast. Others such as the Government and the NHS say  there are no health issues.

just for interest, here’s the plan of Parwich with 100metre distances from the proposed mast location that was posted previously in a comment.


In posting this I wish to make clear I am neither endorsing nor opposing the mast plans but merely seeking to make sure residents of the village are aware and can find the relevant information.
