Telecomms tower rejected over radiation concerns

A PROPOSED 4G tower in Lathlain has been denied approval after residents voiced their concerns on radiation exposure and visual impact on the surroundings.

The 15-metre telecommunications tower at 156 Orrong Road was planned to enhance Telstra’s 4G wireless network and as a platform for future 5G services.

Residents surrounding the proposed location were against the potential radiation exposure and 5G technology near their living space, although some residents welcomed the faster internet connection at the Town of Victoria Park council meeting last night.
