A petition calling to scrap the plans to install telecommunications equipment on the roof of a ‘iconic’ Chiswick building has been launched.
The petition was submitted by a local resident, Lynne Metherell, who claims the masts will be a ‘blot on the open spaces we value in the centre of Chiswick, visible from all sides.’
The plans would see assorted steelwork including six antenna apertures as well as four satellite dishes just over half a metre wide installed on the roof of 9 Devonhurst Place, opposite Turnham Green.
Lynne adds: ‘This will be directly on top of flats occupied by families with young children and will take away valuable space on a flat roof used by residents for health and recreational purposes. Say NO to the arbitrary take over by telecoms giant EE without consideration of people living directly below.’
The Chiswick Calendar has approached EE for comment.
