Council officials have given the go-ahead for a replacement telecoms mast to be provided outside the Acorn Rugby Club on Thanet Road.
There have been problems with sight lines for vehicles exiting the car park as the equipment cabinets were originally placed too close to the road.
Hopes were that they might be moved a couple of metres to improve road safety. Instead Council officials have given the go-ahead for the scheme.
The 20-meter high pole will be 5 metres taller than the existing pole. It will have one fewer cabinet.
