Notice of consultation regarding a proposed mobile phone base station

Amplitel (part of the Telstra Group) proposes the installation of a new 35m high monopole located at 49 School Road, Menzies Creek, at the site of the Puffing Billy Railway Museum, for a new mobile telecommunications facility.

The proposal is an outcome of the Federal Government Peri Urban Mobile Program (PUMP). The PUMP program is intended to provide new and improved mobile services in peri-urban areas where there is an identified bushfire risk. With the installation of the proposed tower, network coverage will significantly increase.
