ResponseThe Council has only granted consent to erect mobile masts at Hertford Theatre.  I have attached the 2 agreements relevant to the FOI request (downloads section below).  The first dates from 2001 with an initial rent of £7,000 pa which increased to £7,936 pa.  This rent continued until a new 10 year lease was granted in 2015 at an initial rent of £9,000 p.a. with a rent review due in 2020.
