PLANNING inspectors have now carried out the inquiry into the appeal over the installation of a phone mast at the Glebe Sports Ground.
"Our thanks go to the planning officers from Gateshead who put the case of the council and local residents opposed to the continued presence of the mast," said Councillor Mary Wallace.
Residents may recall that the mast was not built to the original planning permission granted by Gateshead Council.
The appeal will decide whether or not the mast can remain in place. However, a result is not expected for up to seven weeks following the appeal.
