Following on from this, I now find that planning application has been submitted.
What bothers me is that some of the parties consulted cannot see the proposed site from their premises and they already have access to FTTC services from cab 28 (288) or cab 42 (128) and cable from Virgin Media - spin round 180 degrees (from cab 42) and you'll see the Virgin Media cab. They could effectively limit my choice of higher speed broadband by objecting to the development of cab 33. And I don't particularly want Virgin Media.
N.B. The tree adjacent to cab 33 has been removed sometime within the previous 4 years and I can't find any planning consent for its removal.
The planning application states that the conservation area is Moss Hall Crescent, but cab 33 is (arguably) situated on Ballards Lane. None of the other cabs previously mentioned have required planning permission and they're all within 100m of cab 33.
Worried (and I'll definitely NOT have FTTC by 31/03/2012)!
