A cell mast has been built next to the Fish Hoek fire station. According to mayoral committee member for transport, Felicity Purchase, the fire station’s lookout tower can no longer carry the weight of the telecommunications rig mounted on top of it. The gear will be removed and the tower repaired. In future, the tower will only be used for firefighter training. The site’s zoning permits a rooftop or free-standing base telecommunication station so it wasn’t necessary to submit a land-use application.
