New Cell Phone Towers
A Site Plan Control application has now formally been received for 7 Harlech Court in the Guardsman Road and Green Lane area. The Application will facilitate a Bell Mobility telecommunication tower located at the southwest corner of this property. The proposed tower will be 40 meters in height with a base of 48 square meters within a fenced in area of 510.50 square meters on the 0.26 hectare site.
I am a resident of the Aileen-Willowbrook-Green Lane area and am firmly opposed to a new tower being located at this location and urge Markham Council to issue a 'non-concurrence' (rejection) of this Application.
I believe that we must make better use of existing infrastructure such as hydro poles, light and signal standards before allowing a proliferation of new cell towers. We must also have a clearer and impartial understanding of the health impacts of exposure to radio-frequency electromagnetic fields before proceeding with any new tower approvals and that community consultation is paramount in each instance.
