“For the college of judges “there has not been adequate publicity by the municipality”, the inhabitants “learned only after project approval”
“The 30 meter antenna at Monte Santa Maria Tiberina will no longer be built. The ruling comes at the hands of the Tar of Umbria, which therefore cancels the authorization granted by the Altotiberian Municipality to Wind Tre for the installation of a new radioelectric plant in via San Pietro, which would have housed three directional antennas, three parables for data transfer over the air and additional remote devices.
“There was no adequate publicity”
The college of judges decided in this direction because – as stated in the sentence – “ of a procedural formality , which must in any case precede the issuance of the enabling measure for the construction of the radio base station, even though to the owners of the buildings that arise in proximity to the site affected by the construction of the plant does not require the communication to start the procedure “.
In a nutshell, before issuing the authorization, the Municipality of Monte Santa Maria should have given adequate publicity to the request filed by Wind Tre , but this was not the case, and consequently the final measure was not spoiled.
An entire country against a telephony giant
The Monteschi inhabitants themselves have long complained ” that they have been unjustly left out of the authorization procedure, since they have not been given any notice of the installation application “, knowing it only after the approval by the Municipality.
The appeal against the telephone giant (Municipality and Harp not brought to trial) by the residents, represented by the lawyer Elio Errichiello , who had already mobilized en masse with the establishment of a committee and thousands of signatures, was therefore accepted, gathered against a structure that would have disfigured the environment and affected public health.
