The hotly debated subject of 5G was discussed by Frome Town Councillors at July’s Council Meeting.
The Councillors agreed the following recommendation: Frome Town council has a moral responsibility to protect public health and the local environment. Until there is more independent scientific consensus that 5G wireless radiation is harmless to humans and the environment, FTC adopts the precautionary principle and will not endorse the roll out of 5G.
Leader of the Council, Rich Ackroyd said, “Clearly Frome Town Council is not in a position to ban or allow 5G to go ahead in our town. Although our official position doesn’t endorse the roll out it does not mean that Frome Town Council is against 5G, simply that we’re exercising caution until we have more information available.”
FTC have agreed to work alongside Glastonbury Town Council to keep abreast of any further developments.
