New rules for cell tower proposals

New rules will give the public more say on proposed cell towers in their community.

Our MP Tony Clement says that Industry Canada rules announced last Wednesday will ensure that the public will have their say, regardless of the proposed size of the tower.

Clement says the issue of cell tower proposals has caused many conflicts across Parry Sound and Muskoka and the improvements to Industry Canada’s Antenna Tower Siting Policy will make sure that local residents and municipal governments are at the forefront of the tower placement process.

The changes to the policy require companies to consult communities on all commercial tower installations, regardless of height, build the tower within three years of consulting with communities, and ensure that residents are well-informed of upcoming consultations.
