Parish Comments:- Object: EP18 and GB1

We believe this proposal conflicts with policies which seek to protect the greenbelt and quality of developed areas. The increase in height and the nature of the structure and materials will have an adverse affect on the character and visual amenity. Our previous comments suggested that a more sympathetic use of materials to camouflage could be used. See links: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Camouflaged_antenna_towers_and_masts
