Vodafone makes third Bath mast application

Vodafone is to make a third application to put up a mobile phone mast in the Twerton area of Bath.

The company wants to erect the mast on the corner of Poolemead Road and Wedgwood Road.

Previous application were rejected because of fears of damage to trees and how the mast would look on the street.

Dr Rob Matthews, from Vodafone, said it needed the mast in the area to increase its coverage.

"[New smartphones] are putting a strain on the network from a data perspective and what we're looking to do is make sure is make sure we have enough data capacity for users in the area," he said.
