Plans for communication mast at local GAA pitch resubmitted to council
Plans to install a telecommunications mast at a local GAA pitch have been resubmitted to Louth County Council.
Shared Access Limited have lodged a renewed planning application with the local authority seeking to install the mobile phone antenna at the Dundalk Young Irelands pitch at Rockfield Court, off Hoey’s Lane.
Their initial application, submitted in September, was due to be decided upon this month but was deemed to be incomplete.
They are seeking permission to remove an existing 19.3m tall floodlight and replace it with a 27m monopole which would support telecommunications antennae for use by Eir and other operators, which with the installation of dishes, remote radio units and ground based equipment cabinets will provide 2G, 3G and 4G mobile electronic communication services.
The existing flood light lamps would be reattached to the replacement structure at 19.3m.
A decision will now be made by January 4th 2020.
Local residents have raised concern about the mast and are expected to lob objections to its installation.
