Glenarm Telecommunications Mast - 7 December 2017

Glenarm Telecommunications Mast Mid & East Antrim Borough Council has today approved a new telecommunications mast in Glenarm village. The mast will be shared by O2 and Vodafone and when built it will greatly improve mobile coverage and download speeds for the whole village and the wider area.

Ross Planning is delighted with this approval, which means a 100% success rate for telecommunications applications in 2017. We are proud to work for O2 and Vodafone as they roll-out their 4G network across Northern Ireland. Good telecommunications is no longer seen as a nice-to-have, it is now considered essential to modern living and business growth.

Les Ross has been involved in processing telecommunications applications for many years and has noticed a significant shift in the public's attitude to new telecoms masts:

"Hostility to such development has now been replaced by an accepting and positive approach, we constantly speak to people and political representatives who are asking better coverage and suggesting places where we might site new masts."

"Over the last few years we have handled about 170 applications for telecoms masts. We are looking forward to more activity in this sector in 2018 and hopefully we will retain our 100% record."
