5G and Health > Local Authority Toolkit

We are aware that local authorities across the country receive many questions from residents, including those related to 5G.

We have therefore developed a toolkit for councillors and officers to use as required to help explain this exciting new technology to constituents.

We appreciate that many of the questions raised are because many people are unaware of the benefits of 5G or misunderstand what it is. This is often because information that is publicly available uses technical jargon. Therefore, we have avoided the use of difficult to understand terminology, where possible, to help overcome some of the barriers to understanding.

We also have published a specific document to explain the science and technology around 5G radio waves and masts here. This may be useful as a reference document for any mast planning applications.
