Casebook: Appeal Cases - Telecommunications - Monopole found discordant with listed station

An inspector has rejected plans for a 12m telecommunications mast on part of a Territorial Army base in a Tyneside conservation area after finding that it would harm the setting of a nearby grade II* railway station.

Although the mast would be slender, the inspector noted that it would be higher than nearby lamp standards and would be clearly visible by people entering and leaving the station. In his opinion it would be a discordant and incongruous feature in the conservation area and the setting of the listed building. This harm would be compounded by the cumulative impact when viewed in the context of an existing mast sited further from the station, he ruled.

DCS No: 100039094; Inspector: Philip Asquith; Written representations.
