SOS Grange, who share some common members with us, have asked us to let you all know about their campaign regarding a mobile phone tower:
On the 1st
Dec 2020 a limited number of residents received a letter from Council and a flyer from Telstra.
This was to inform us that Telstra intends to build a 5G tower at the Grange Bowls Club (with their consent!).
This tower will be 85m from a kindergarten, 58m from a church, its netball and tennis courts and social hub that is used most days of the week.
It is 4m from my back fence, and 3.1m from others.
Initially we petitioned Council and put in 370 Statements of Representation to be considered.
The assessment panel dates have been put back, at request by Telstra, until ?June/July.
As we don’t want the tower built next to our backyards, we don’t expect others to want the same.
Hence we have expanded our horizons.
We have put together a petition to the House of Assembly, which Stephen Mullighan has kindly offered to table.
The petition is asking that there is a pause to the rollout of 5G, throughout residential areas of South Australia, until the below bodies complete their studies into electromagnetic emissions in 2024 and publish them:
World Health Organisation
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
International Agency for Research on Cancer
Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency
The petition has hyperlinks to back up all statements.
We have put this petition online at Change.org http://chng.it/KBjND7WcBP
We were wondering if you could share this link with your members.
