BATHURST Regional Council hopes an expert speaker will be able to shed some light on any impacts of the roll-out of the 5G network.
In June, councillor Alex Christian went public with his fears over the potential health risks associated with the 5G network.
His concerns came from numerous articles from across the globe that he has read and a petition signed by thousands of scientists hoping to put a stop to the roll-out of the network until studies can be done.
Cr Christian's main concern has been the amount of infrastructure that would be required to support the network, which is much more significant than its predecessors, and what impact the radiation would have on human health.
Last week, he asked director of Environmental Planning and Building Services for an update on what information council had found about the potential impact on health.
"We are attempting to collect advice," the director, Neil Southorn, said.
"We're targeting expert bodies, CSIRO, etc, who have previously looked at studies, rather than trying to understand the science behind individual studies ourselves, and our intention is to bring that back to a council working party in due course.
Mr Southorn couldn't give an exact time frame for when that would be, given the complexity of the topic.
"It will take some time to assemble that information and we hope to get an expert speaker to comment, rather than relying on the [council] staff alone to provide information on what is quite a technical matter," he said.
