A hole for a 5G mast in a Lincolnshire village has now been filled in after two councils raised concerns about the location.
North Kesteven District Council (NKDC) and Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) expressed worries about the location of Three's mast on Warren Lane in Witham St Hughs.
The site was deemed to have consent after NKDC failed to meet a deadline for a decision, despite saying it had intentions to refuse the proposals.
Work began on the site last week but now it appears the mobile operator has re-filled the hole for the 18-metre tall mast.
An NKDC spokesperson said “Work on the 5G telecommunications mast footings has been instructed to pause at this time, following concerns around the impact of the mast on the footpath and cycleway."
A spokesperson for Three said they were “awaiting consent from the Highways Authority to open the road to enable us to build the mast”.
