Cornerstone always aims to work closely with our landlords, local communities and planning authorities. We follow Best Practice principles in the location of our mobile infrastructure sites and consult with local stakeholders such as planning authorities and elected community representatives.
We know that members of the public sometimes have questions about our infrastructure which our Community team can help with by providing information on general issues as well as site specific queries.
All of our sites strictly adhere to the international safety guidelines as set out by ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radio Protection). Below these Guideline levels there is no evidence of adverse health effects to any member of the public.
For more information on this subject visit : https://www.mobileuk.org/industry-topics or take a read of some of our short guides:
“We ensure our base stations comply with all relevant health and safety guidelines, allowing us to facilitate connectivity to communities and our customers to deliver mobile services where people work, travel and live.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that countries adopt the ICNIRP guidelines. The consensus of reviews by independent public health authorities, including Public Health England, is that these guidelines provide protection for all people against all established health hazards.
The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations 2016 (CEMFAW) defines the exposure limits, for workers, to radio signals. These Regulations use the ICNIRP Guidelines for these limits. Mobile network operators design and operate their sites to be compliant to these limits.
