Subject: Agenda Item 8: PROPOSED BASE STATION INSTALLATION UPGRADE AT Cell no. CTIL 11353924_TEF 42337 Hassocks – Hassocks Football Club, The Beacon Ground, Brighton Road, Hassocks, Brighton, West Sussex, BN6 9LY


1. The purpose of this report is to invite Members to note the following correspondence received from Waldon Telecom Ltd regarding a proposed base station installation upgrade at Hassocks Football Club, The Beacon Ground, Brighton Road, Hassocks.

2. Members are invited to consider whether Hassocks Parish Council has any comments on this proposal.

Dear Councillors

PROPOSED BASE STATION INSTALLATION UPGRADE AT Cell no. CTIL 11353924_TEF 42337 Hassocks – Hassocks Football Club, The Beacon Ground, Brighton Road, Hassocks, Brighton, West Sussex, BN6 9LY. 

Cornerstone is the UK’s leading mobile infrastructure services company. We acquire, manage, and own over 20,000 sites and are committed to enabling best in class mobile connectivity for over half of all the country’s mobile customers. We oversee works on behalf of telecommunications providers and wherever possible aim to:

  • promote shared infrastructure
  • maximise opportunities to consolidate the number of base stations
  • significantly reduce the environmental impact of network development

Cornerstone have identified this site as suitable for an equipment upgrade for Telefonica. The purpose of this letter is to consult with you and seek your views on our proposal before proceeding with the works. We understand that you are not always able to provide site specific comments, however, Cornerstone and Telefonica are committed to consultation with communities for mobile telecommunications proposals and as such would encourage you to respond.

As part of Telefonica’s network improvement program, there is a specific requirement for a radio base station upgrade at this location to provide improved 4G network coverage and capacity for Telefonica in the area.

Mobiles can only work with a network of base stations in place where people want to use their mobile phones or other wireless devices. Without base stations, the mobile phones, and other devices we rely on simply won’t work.

Please find below the details of the proposed site: –

Our technical network requirement is as follows:

A number of options have been assessed in respect of the site search process and we consider the best solution is as follows:

  • Hassocks – Hassocks Football Club, The Beacon Ground, Brighton Road, Hassocks, Brighton, West Sussex, BN6 9LY.  NGR:- E530150, N 115050.
  • Remove 3no of the 6no existing antennas and replace with 3no new antennas on existing monopole. 3no existing antennas to be decommissioned and remain in=situ. Install 9no RRUs behind the antennas, 1no GPS module on top of Gantry pole and refresh equipment within existing equipment cabinets.
  • This option has been chosen as it utilises an existing installation which will improve coverage with minimal changes to the equipment, reducing the visual impact on the surrounding area as far as technically possible.

The Local Planning Authority mast register and our records of other potential sites have already been reviewed, the policies in the Development Plan have been taken into account and the planning history of the site has been examined.

All Cornerstone installations are designed to be fully compliant with the public exposure guidelines established by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). These guidelines have the support of UK Government, the European Union and they also have the formal backing of the World Health Organisation.

We look forward to receiving any comments you may have on the proposal within 14 days of the date of this letter.

Should you have any queries regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Minutes

HASSOCKS PARISH COUNCIL

Draft Minutes of the informal meeting of the PLANNING COMMITTEE held remotely on Monday 28 June 2021 at 7.30pm

Attendees: Parish Councillors: Carolyn Barton, Bob Brewer, Leslie Campbell, Bill Hatton, Nick Owens and Claire Tester (Chair).

In Attendance: Deputy Clerk: Tracy Forte; 2 members of the public.

P21/32 APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE.  Apologies for absence were received from Cllr Kristian Berggreen.

P21/33 DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST.

Members noted the Minutes of the Meeting held on 7 June 2021 (previously circulated), for approval at the next Committee meeting.

Members noted the Minutes of the Meeting held on 9 June 2021 (previously circulated), for approval at the next Committee meeting.

P21/34 PUBLIC PARTICIPATION. 

P21/34.1 Mr Chris Bere spoke on behalf of his son-in-law, Mr Tola Juba, in support of Mr Juba’s application DM/21/2099 22 Brook Avenue Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8LG Proposed loft conversion with dormer to the rear roof slope and roof windows to front, plus replacing obscured glass to existing rear first floor windows with clear glass. Mr Bere informed the Committee that his son-in-law’s property and the adjoining house are the only privately owned properties in the road which is why none of the other properties have been extended.  However he did not believe that the proposed work would be detrimental to the street scene.

P21/35 The Chair proposed considering DM/21/2099 22 Brook Avenue Hassocks first, which was   agreed by the Committee.

P21/36 APPLICATIONS

DM/21/2099 22 Brook Avenue Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8LG Proposed loft conversion with dormer to the rear roof slope and roof windows to front, plus replacing obscured glass to existing rear first floor windows with clear glass. Response: RECOMMEND APPROVAL.  The applicant is advised that Government has committed to adopt a ‘Future Buildings Standard’ during 2021 which will change the Building Regulations requirements for alterations and extensions to homes to bring these alterations closer to that of a ‘zero energy building’.  This is supported by Policy 5 ‘Enabling Zero Carbon’ of the Hassocks Neighbourhood Plan which states that proposals that modify existing buildings (including extensions) should seek to maximise the inclusion of energy-saving measures and renewable energy generation.  Energy saving measures include floor, roof and wall insulation, and low u-value windows (which may need to be triple glazed).  These requirements may require amendments to your design which could affect the drawings submitted for planning permission. The applicant may wish to note that alterations that are built to a Nearly Zero Energy standard, are unlikely to need further retrofitting to minimise the carbon emissions that the nation is required to reduce to zero by 2050.  As retrofitting an existing home to be highly energy efficient is more complex than doing so for a new building, applicants may wish to look at the ‘EnerPHit’ standard that the Government is understood to be considering as the applicable “Nearly Zero Energy’ standard in this context, or at the Architypes published by the London Energy Transformation Initiative for u-values for your extension walls, windows etc. and for ventilation and overheating prevention standards to be achieved.

The two members of the public left the meeting.

DM/21/1753 Adastra Place 38 Keymer Road Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8AJ Aluminium frame boards/pavement signs, full length window vinyl, interactive display boards, halo illuminated writing sign, banner attached to railings and vinyl on entry doors and other windows. Response:  RECOMMEND REFUSAL.  On the basis of over-proliferation of signage and the potential negative impact on adjacent neighbouring residential properties of the illuminated signs and interactive display boards operating outside of opening hours.

DM/21/1746 Adastra Place 38 Keymer Road Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8AJ Alterations to elevations, extract ducts, a/c units, and LED outdoor wall lights. Response:  RECOMMEND APPROVAL.  However as air conditioning adds to global warming, the recommendation of approval is subject to the use of available alternative technologies in place of air conditioning.

DM/21/1959 Millview 78 Keymer Road Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8QP Proposed single storey rear garden room extension and solar panels to be fitted on the roof on the rear and south west elevations. Response: RECOMMEND APPROVAL.  The applicant is advised that Government has committed to adopt a ‘Future Buildings Standard’ during 2021 which will change the Building Regulations requirements for alterations and extensions to homes to bring these alterations closer to that of a ‘zero energy building’.  This is supported by Policy 5 ‘Enabling Zero Carbon’ of the Hassocks Neighbourhood Plan which states that proposals that modify existing buildings (including extensions) should seek to maximise the inclusion of energy-saving measures and renewable energy generation.  Energy saving measures include floor, roof and wall insulation, and low u-value windows (which may need to be triple glazed).  These requirements may require amendments to your design which could affect the drawings submitted for planning permission.

DM/21/2016 31 Adastra Avenue Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8DP Proposed alterations to existing first floor to increase accommodation from 3 bedrooms to 4 plus provide ensuite to bedroom 1. (LDC) Response: NOTED.

DM/21/2011 22 Ockenden Way Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8HS Convert garage to a habitable room, raising of garage flat roof, new window and flat roof porch to front elevation. Response: RECOMMEND APPROVAL.  The applicant is advised that Government has committed to adopt a ‘Future Buildings Standard’ during 2021 which will change the Building Regulations requirements for alterations and extensions to homes to bring these alterations closer to that of a ‘zero energy building’.  This is supported by Policy 5 ‘Enabling Zero Carbon’ of the Hassocks Neighbourhood Plan which states that proposals that modify existing buildings (including extensions) should seek to maximise the inclusion of energy-saving measures and renewable energy generation.  Energy saving measures include floor, roof and wall insulation, and low u-value windows (which may need to be triple glazed).  These requirements may require amendments to your design which could affect the drawings submitted for planning permission.

DM/21/2088 49 London Road Hassocks West Sussex BN6 9NU Review of conservatory and provision of single story rear extension and left conversion.  Response: RECOMMEND APPROVAL. However it was noted that there appeared to be inaccuracies in the description and it was assumed that it should read removal of conservatory rather than review of conservatory and loft conversion rather than left conversion.  The applicant is advised that Government has committed to adopt a ‘Future Buildings Standard’ during 2021 which will change the Building Regulations requirements for alterations and extensions to homes to bring these alterations closer to that of a ‘zero energy building’.  This is supported by Policy 5 ‘Enabling Zero Carbon’ of the Hassocks Neighbourhood Plan which states that proposals that modify existing buildings (including extensions) should seek to maximise the inclusion of energy-saving measures and renewable energy generation.  Energy saving measures include floor, roof and wall insulation, and low u-value windows (which may need to be triple glazed).  These requirements may require amendments to your design which could affect the drawings submitted for planning permission.

DM/21/1717 26 Semley Road Hassocks West Sussex BN6 8PE (Amended plan received 15.06.2021) Application seeks to make amendments to approved application DM/19/2813, to change the colour and type of cladding with render on the first floor side elevations, add a new window on the rear north side elevation and add two rooflights to the rear facing roof.
