The current BANES Council Administration has turned down an application for a replacement 5G mast to the north of the city, with local LibDem councillors arguing that there was a danger the "signals" would harm fruit and nuts. LibDem MP for Bath, Wera Hobhouse, has supported those voicing unfounded health concerns over 5G.
Conservatives reject this unscientific nonsense.
5G is already in Bath. For example, a mast is in place at Bath City FC's football stadium, Twerton Park. The whole city needs the increased capacity which 5G brings. Our businesses need it, our world-class universities need it, and we as residents need it, not least the increasing number of us working from home.
Another application for a new 5G mast, in a similar location to the one rejected by the Council, is coming before the BANES Planning committee shortly. We are calling on the LibDems to stop the nonsense, and "Say Yes to 5G for Bath".
