The Welsh Assembly voted unanimously for the GPDO to be revoked and henceforth for all masts and like structures in Wales to be subject to full planning permission

Some month ago, a Plaid Cymru member of the Welsh Assembly won the 'ballot' for introducing the equivalent of a parliamentary private member's Bill and contacted Mast Sanity with a view to introducing 'something to do with telecoms planning'. I liased with Chris Maile who rose immediately to the challenge and, overnight, drafted a motion seeking revocation of the General Permitted Development Order (Wales) in terms of telecommunications installations.

This proposal survived various arcane processes as it went forward during the following weeks and today, 12th October, the Welsh Assembly voted unanimously for the GPDO to be revoked and henceforth for all masts and like structures in Wales to be subject to full planning permission. Full details are awaited from Chris, but this is very good news and serves to put pressure on the 'English' parliament. The MOA will not be happy!



The Welsh Assemly have voted 41 for and 0 against the recommendations contained within a report of the Assembly committe that was charged with the investigation of Mobile Phone Base Stations after the February motion on telecoms.

We must congratulate Plaid Cymru for pushing this forward, they first contact Mast Sanity asking for help in formulating a motion, that was passed on to PS (me) by David Baron and I drafted the first draft for Plaids Feb motion. This shows what can be done when activists work with politicians of what ever party on issues that are important. This was the best result for Wales, albeit that the First Minister now has an opportunity to make some amendments, and therefgore the strengh of the proposals may be watered down, but nevertheless with such a vote it will be difficult for the First Minister to by pass the main issues, which is to make all telecoms in Wales determined by full planning. The full report (which I have not yet fully read) is very interesting and a useful tool to put pressure on the UK Parliament to adopt similar policies for the whole UK.

I shall be drafting a media release that will go out tomorrow and will post a copy to this listing.
