Public consultation to consider rules governing the installation of telecommunication antenna in Montreal

MONTREAL, Sept. 2, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Office de consultation publique de Montreal launched today a consultation on a draft by-law to regulate the installation of telecommunication antennas. This issue had been discussed in some boroughs and within the City Council. In fact, the Council had established a committee composed of elected representatives and municipal officials to address this matter. This committee submitted its work in late spring and unanimously concluded to the necessity of adopting a regulation that covers this situation for the entire territory of the city.

The draft by-law which will be under review includes provisions dealing with the layout of antennas on public property, especially in light of its impact on the landscape and its proximity to residential windows. It also deals with antennas on walls, on balconies and requirements which must be included in boroughs' regulations.
