Development Management Committee

Monday evening saw the March meeting of the Development Management Committee. The meeting saw a couple of applications for mobile phone masts. One was at Forthill Sports Club in the Ferry and the other was in Lochee United's Thomson Park. I was concerned that companies were exploiting loop-holes to limit the number of people that they have to give a neighbour notification to. Instead of treating the application site as Thomson Park for example, the application site was roughly 3 metres square and was far enough away from local residents as to exclude them the consultations. This is disingenuous at best. I am looking for ways to deal with this.
