Arrived at this page and not sure why we need to object to 5G masts? Start here &/or see Health Effects.


Please contact us at bristolrafg[at] if you can help our objection campaigns to any of the masts below. Here’s an idea of some of the steps that could be taken and here’s a list of specific help needed. We’d be very grateful if you could also put in an objection to each of the masts below. Non Bristol residents may also object if they have family and friends in Bristol who they are concerned about. However, please note “Anonymous comments cannot be accepted. A name and postal address is essential when deciding whether to grant planning permission because it allows us to assess the information and take into account where you are in relation to the application.”

The planning website is a bit glitchy so please ensure you get a popup notification with confirmation after you submit your objection; leave it a while and then check your objection shows on the Documents tab. If you have objected to a different mast previously, be careful that you delete that text from the form before writing your new objection. If you make an error or duplication, you can email planning and ask them to correct it. Please ensure you receive an email confirmation of your objection. If you do not, please email your objection to and cc the case officer.


See for the most up-to-date guidance on how to object to mast planning applications.


What can you object about?

1) Pollution and consequent risks to wildlife and public health

It is national policy that planners cannot consider public health as long as the mast application has an ICNIRP (International Commission of Non-Ionising Radiation Protection) certificate BUT this is a fallacy, as legally, planners must make evidence-based decisions on public health material planning grounds.

If you would like to object on health grounds, it is important to include this point, so we suggest including these specific statements and information:-

** add in other credible scientific evidence references as you wish.


2) Siting and Appearance

For a Prior-approval application (the majority), You can object on grounds of siting and appearance – which includes proximity to residential dwellings, schools, university buildings, residential care homes, nurseries and so on. Ecological harm (e.g. to bees and trees) and health & safety (lack of risk assessment etc) are material planning considerations so can be included as well.

Factors concerning siting may involve:

  • height of the site in relation to surrounding land
  • topography of the site and vegetation
  • openness and visibility of the site
  • designated areas
  • the site in relation to existing masts
  • structures or buildings
  • proximity to residential property, schools, colleges, universities, care homes

With regard to appearance this can include details such as:

  • materials
  • colour
  • design
  • dimensions
  • overall shape
  • solid or open framework
  • could also mention disquietening appearance of masts affecting people’s quiet enjoyment of the neighbourhood, and possibly leading to anxiety and mental health issues


What Makes the Difference? >> Local Support!

What our small core team can do:

  • Monitor the planning site for new applications
  • Compile a summary Info Page for each new application
  • Create a flyer and flyer the area closest to the mast to find local residents willing to go further
  • Create systems, templates and advise you with your campaign

What local residents/schools/businesses can do:

All the rest – see our Next Steps page.


Make Your Objection

Using the table below, please use the Info Page link to make your objection as this gives guidance on how to object most effectively and details of the grounds for objection for the specific mast. Where there is no Info Page yet available, please use the Application link which will take you directly to the Comments tab to make your objection. Thank you! 

N.B. If you find a problem with any of the links below, you can go directly to and search using the Application Reference ending in /Y or /F

*Latest date to object? The deadline date in the table below is the later of the ‘Consultation Expiry Date’ and the ‘Latest Site Notice Expiry Date’ (shown in black text). Where this date has passed, the decision date is shown in red. The planning site says that objections will be noted until the decision is made, but some case officers ask for objections a few days earlier so they can make their case report within the deadline. So don’t risk it – object NOW!

Decision result: A Approved, R Refused, W Withdrawn, APP Appealed. Masts in italics (at the top) have been decided so can no longer be objected to.

Join the Bristol Campaign Group

Our Bristol campaign has been meeting regularly every 2-3 weeks from September to March. As physical meetups are not possible at the current time, we are now meeting on Zoom (see Calendar) and also hooking up with other campaigns around the country so we can be more effective.

Do sign-up to our newsletter & stay informed about what’s going on in with the Bristol campaign. Use our Join Our Campaign form to tell us a bit about yourself and how you might like to be involved. No problem if you don’t know yet, there’s lots of options including ad hoc help if you have time and energy, Council meetings/Civic, Communications & Media, Health, Wildlife, Environment, public awareness and more.

Every day, more and more people are waking up to the reality of 5G and what this means, not just for our health, but for wildlife and the environment at large.

Thank you for being here and for being part of the solution.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
