Plans are afoot to erect an 18m 5G mast on the edge of the Primrose Hill park. It would be situated on the footpath across from the junction of Fitzroy Road and Regent’s Park Road, and opposite 68 Regent’s Park Road.
The plans are available to view on the Camden Council planning portal. To date, there have been almost 90 comments to the proposals, with residents voicing strong opinions, saying that it has no place in a conservation area, and calling it an ‘eyesore’ and a ‘blight on the beautiful landscape’.
Mick Hudspeth from Primrose Hill Community Association said that ‘An 18m mast in the sightlines of a major London park and tourist attraction is out of order. It is also in a conservation area, and right outside of a 250-bed sheltered housing scheme.’
If you feel strongly about this issue, have your say on Camden’s planning portal and enter the application number 2021/1813/P.
Comments can be submitted up to 13 June.
