Edinburgh residents are divided over a plan to erect a 30-metre 5G mast in the popular walking area

Edinburgh planners are currently reviewing an application that would see a 30-metre telecommunications mast erected on Corstorphine Hill.

Vodafone’s submission, which was validated on August 21, received more than 300 comments before the midnight deadline of Thursday, September 14.

Community members appear to be divided on the proposal, with some welcoming better cell coverage while others feel it will destroy the beauty of the local landscape.

The council’s planning portal states that if the proposal is successful, an 18m net mast will be removed and a 30m net mast will be placed in its place.

The site of the nuclear bunker at Barnton, which is located off Clermiston Road North, will be adjacent to the planned site.
