I received some great news on the Horsell Way mast yesterday. Tyco Electronics, agent for Vodafone and 02, informed councillors that they are to "further investigate the Kestrel Way site as their preferred option". Tyco say that "the Horsell Way site will not be pursued any further at this time".
This means that 02 will look to put up a mast near Kestrel Way, on Horsell Common Preservation Society (HCPS) land. The site is removed both physically and visibly from homes, schools and businesses. It is a site that has had a good degree of public support.
There was much effort to promote this site at the time of the original Horsell Way mast application , but to no avail. It is a real step forward that 02 are now seriously considering this location. I understand 02 plan to meet Woking BC representatives at the site in the near future.
I will continue to keep residents informed on progress.
