Mast plans across from shopping centre

By Aideen O'Flaherty

A TELECOMMUNICATIONS company has applied for a licence to erect a mast at a grass verge across the road from Woodstown Shopping Centre in Ballycullen, on land owned by South Dublin County Council.

Cignal Infrastructure Ltd submitted the application for the licence this month, seeking permission for a 15m free-standing street pole with “one alpha 3.0 shrouded antenna at azimuths tbc° & 1 Ø300mm dish (to be included only if no fibre infrastructure in area)”.

Woodstown SC 14 1

The license has been applied for a location across from Woodstown Shopping Centre in Ballycullen

Permission is also being sought for an ancillary cabinet (1.652m high x 1.898m wide x 0.798 deep).

In a planning statement, which was submitted by David Mulcahy Planning Consultants on behalf of Cignal, the applicant stated that: “Three are upgrading the network in Dublin to provide customers with good quality voice and high-speed data services.

“To meet customer demands, a new site at this location is required to provide indoor services to the residents of this area and surrounding environs.

“Three’s existing coverage here suffers from a lack of dominance and the new site will improve coverage for the many residential and commercial users within the area, as well as commuters travelling to and from work.”

A decision on the licence is due from South Dublin County Council by August 6.
