Not everyone is happy about the proliferation of telecommunication masts for reasons of visual intrusion in the landscape or on buildings, or because of perceived or possibly real health risk, or perhaps because of a consequential devaluation of their property due to a mast nearby.

Some say building insurances could be invalidated and owners employes and their advisors sued for allowing telecommunications development on their properties when there is a perceived health risk that may become a real and actionable one!
