I have now been informed (see below) by the Birmingham City Council that they are minded to refuse the proposed Planning application for a mast at the rear of 43 Bowman Road.
I am sure all those residents who have taken the time to sign the petitions against this planning application (which I have submitted on their behalf) will be delighted to hear this news.
However the finale decision has not been made yet and I would warn local residents about getting their hopes raised to early.
Local residents, Councillors and the Planning Department have done all they can however to stop this ugly mast blighting the properties of home owner if the local area.
