Applicant says telecommunications upgrade is needed to cope with high density of people in the area

A planning application to erect a 20 metre high 5G mast on Chiswick High Road, next to the entrance to Chiswick Business Park, has been submitted to LB Hounslow.

If approved the mast would be just down the road from Gunnersbury Station, near the former BSI Tower, and would replace an 11-metre high mast. The existing cabinets at the location would be replaced with new ones.

The applicant, Mobile Broadband Network – which is jointly owned by EE and Three, says that an upgrade in the technology is needed due to the high density of users in the area. While there are few residential properties in the immediate area of the site, over 9,000 people from 65 of some of the world’s leading companies work at Chiswick Business Park.

Chiswick Business Park is also home to a university campus and hosts a number of festival-style events at various points throughout the year, which draw relatively large crowds of people.

The planning application’s reference is (P/2022/2440).
