The Great Barr Observer has just said on FB that the legal battle to remove the Waverley Avenue phone mast has been lost.
A High Court bid to remove a mobile phone mast, which was erected at the junction of Waverley Avenue and Beacon Road without planning permission, has failed. Walsall Council brought action against Vodafone, which used a legal loophole to install a mast despite the council refusing permission. The phone giant argued it never received copies of the decision within the 56-day limit and pressed ahead with the installation. This week’s ruling means the mast can stay where it is.
This is bad news for the local residents who have fought a battle to remove this.
