Community relations.


Cornerstone undertakes consultation with local communities prior to submission of planning applications or permitted development notifications for our equipment. This consultation, often in the form of letters to elected representatives, complies with the industry guidelines and allows us to understand the local community’s response to our base stations. If members of the public have ongoing concerns, our community team are available to provide further information.

Exposure to the radio signals used in telecommunications is governed by health and safety guidelines. The exposure guidelines adopted by the Government in the UK have been developed by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) following a comprehensive assessment of all the peer-reviewed scientific literature, including thermal and non-thermal effects. The guidelines are based on evaluations of biological effects that have been established to have health consequences.

Community relations

“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.”

Brian Truman
Head of Planning and Community Engagement

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. Vodafone and Telefonica have been designing and operating their sites to be compliant to these limits since 2001.
