Why engage with Local Government on the 5G issue?

The National Environmental Standard for Telecommunications Facilities (NESTF) severely limits local government’s power over a lot of cellular phone infrastructure but local government still has some jurisdiction over some wireless infrastructure.

Local government is responsible for urban trees, which are reportedly being cut down in some towns and cities overseas to make way for 5G. (See: https://www.5g.org.nz/2018/10/06/like-trees-enjoy-breathing-oxygen-you-should-oppose-5g ) Therefore helping to engage with local government candidates to ensure that they are aware of the risks to urban trees from 5G (in addition to other risks posed by 5G, such as the introduction of the IoT and health risks) is important to protect street trees and urban air quality.
