Wind Mobile Statutory Right-of-Way Agreement

Oct 29, 2015

In December 2014, Delta received a preliminary inquiry from Wind Mobile regarding potential locations for telecommunication antennas to improve cellular coverage in North Delta. Following discussions with staff, Wind Mobile proposed a location on an existing BC Hydro transmission tower located on Delta-owned property at 11275 – 72A Avenue.

The proposal involves mounting five antennas on the transmission tower (3 radio-frequency antennas, and 2 microwave antennas). In addition, two control cabinets will be located in a fenced compound near the base of the tower.

The proposal is consistent with Delta’s telecommunications policy which encourages co-location of new antennas on existing towers. The placement of antennas on existing infrastructure not only reduces the number of telecommunication towers within the community, it also minimizes the visual impacts.
