Three more antennas
AT the same council meeting, Optus received unanimous approval to extend an existing telecommunications tower at Trigg Point Park in Ocean Reef.
The proposal was to extend the 22.14m tower by 2.26m and to relocate the antennas and add another three.
The proposal was advertised to 573 property owners within 400m of the Shoran Court site, with 45 submissions received including 40 objections.
Axicom town planner Joanna Ward said the pole extension was required as part of Optus’ nation-wide upgrade of its network and 4G rollout in the City.
A council document said the proposal met the requirements of City and State Government policies and recommended it be conditionally approved, including that no mature vegetation be removed.
