In Bondi Junction NSW on “Replacement of existing...” at 50 Botany Street Bondi Junction NSW 2022:

A Kinane commented

I recognise that the telecommunications tower needs to be updated. However, the proposed EME levels and public exposure to these levels are a matter of real concern. People living within 100-200 metres of the tower will be exposed to EME levels of 3.77% when the current maximum EME level is 1.96%, so almost double the current EME max. levels. People living within 200-300 metres away will be exposed to 2.92% and even those living 300-400 metres away will be exposed to EME levels of 1.33%. I note that there has been an assessment of the impact of the increased EME levels on 5 schools in the area. However, there are a large number of properties and businesses in this area which will be negatively impacted by increased and unsafe EME levels.
I note too that the proposed structure will facilitate the new 5G technology. A number of countries including Switzerland and Israel have a current moratorium on 5G technology due to human safety concerns. it would be appropriate to consult people on any proposed implementation given the increasing concerns in this area.
I object to the new proposed structure based on the significant increased EME levels and request Council consults with all Waverley people on any proposed implementation of 5G technology..
