Dutch cities slam central government’s 5G proposals

Seven Dutch cities are fighting against a central government proposal that would give free rein to telco providers over the installation of 5G antennas.

Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Eindhoven, Groningen, and Almere, backed by the Dutch Association of Cities, say that the proposed bill would force them to provide telcos with full access to public assets.

We had a very similar situation in Poland. Cities under the new law will be expropriated from public property to private companies. The legislative process has been repeatedly broken (deadlines, periods for getting acquainted with the draft, etc.). The consultations were false and during the world period. 99.9% of cities in them never participated in them and did not know about the procedure. We intervened as an organization for all bodies and committees to prevent this.
