Important court ruling on rooftop masts and planning control
United Kingdom Created: 24 Feb 2018
Thanks to Danielle in the forum, who's won a judicial review ruling that pole mounts are in fact masts, see Mawbey vs Lewisham.

Here's what "Council Magazine" has written about the ruling:
"Town and country planning Permitted development. The term 'mast' in para A.1(2)(c) of Pt 16 of Sch 2 to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015, SI 2015/596, should be broadly interpreted, such that each central support pole was a radio mast, as it supported antennae which transmitted and received radio waves. Accordingly, the Planning Court, in allowing the claimant's application for judicial review, held that the defendant local planning authority had wrongly interpreted that provision by having found that the support poles installed at a building had not been masts."
