Lions Bay Residents Opposed to Harvey Creek Tower Development.
We, the undersigned, feel the risks to Lions Bay, should this tower be approved, to be too great.
We are concerned about the risks from a technology that has no long term study proving without a doubt it is safe, that in Europe, scientists and doctors are petitioning for a moratorium on its roll out, and has pages of anecdotal evidence professing to its danger.
A technology that we will not know for sure is not damaging, until it is too late.
How can we live under the style ‘Splendour in Serenity’ when Lions Bay’s mountain panorama will be forever blighted by this tower? With no research based guarantees that cell reception will be improved we risk losing our legendary and iconic vistas based on an uncertainty.
Furthermore, with the income received from this tower installation being less than even half that generated by parking fees alone this year, Lions Bay doesn’t need money from this source.
Lions Bay risks its residents’ well being, it's biodiversity, vistas, property values and reputation with no guarantee of a significant cell service improvement, and we feel these risks are just too considerable for this project to proceed.
