Minimum size of land for mobile tower
by: Biplab Kumar Roy

I have 43' × 6' of empty plot and want to install mobile tower. Is it possible?

Yes and depends

Russ, 45x60 is enough space. Setback will depend on what the town's ordinances are. The carriers can always get a variance.

question about size of location

Can you put a tower on a 45' by 60' space? Is there a minimum distance from road ways?

Standard cell site premise size.

It depends on the type of tower. Guyed towers require more land than a lattice tower and a self supporting lattice tower usually require more space than a monopole site. For self supporting towers the carriers usually try and lease a 100'x100' area for a tower and ground space for equipment for multiple carriers.
