Phone mast appeal

Phone mast appeal

AN APPEAL has been submitted to the Government after Sheffield City Council rejected plans for a 12.5m telecommunications mast opposite the junction of Warminster Road and Hemsworth Road.

Customers of the Rose Garden cafe in Graves Park submitted a petition saying they did not want another phone mast in the area and it “should not be sited so close to this children’s playground and the animal farm”.
