Court rules in City’s favour in MTN high mast saga
The battle between the City and eight residents of Glenwood over the erection and installation of MTN cellular phone technology in the area has come to an end after the Durban High Court concluded the matter, ruling in favour of the City.

Residents of Glenwood complained that the installation of the MTN technology affected their health and called for its removal. The complainants accused the City of not following proper procedures to enter into an infrastructure sharing agreement with MTN.

The City’s Disaster Management and Emergency Control Unit erected high masts for security cameras to provide enhanced coverage but received criticism from residents about entering into an agreement with MTN.

The City wishes to reiterate to the public that it has an open-door policy and encourages residents to come forward to discuss any matters which may affect them without involving the courts.
