Brodie Avenue phone mast update

The planning application for the new mast plus extra cabinets on Brodie Avenue has been turned down. Some local people may be aware of this but in case not here are some of the details. Firstly it would look bad. The extra cabinets and the height of the mast would all have "a significant adverse effect in terms of visual amenity"
What's more, the mast wouldn't have achieved the improved coverage supposedly required.

The three Cressington Councillors opposed this application when it came in. One of my main concerns was the plan to add more cabinets in the central reservation when we have actually just allocated money to plant trees by the existing mast!
