'The lack of assessment regarding the long term economic significance is appalling' says Manea parish clerk in angry letter to Fenland Council over phone mast plans
A decision by a 'junior' planning officer to refuse permission for a telephone mast to be put up in Manea has been heavily criticised by the parish council.
Manea Parish Council's clerk Alan Melton has written a furious letter to Fenland District Council over the decision, which has only just come to light, with him describing the rejection as "frustrating" and criticising the lack of consultation.
The village councillors are now urging the applicants, Cornerstone and Telefonica UK Ltd, to appeal the decision.
