Short of a Crime, Anything Goes: Interior Department Corruption Scandal Widens

http://www.bushgreenwatch.org/mt_archives/000326.php

BUSINESSMEN TELL OF PHONE MAST CONCERNS

A FATHER and son fear a 20ft mobile phone mast next to their factory could have a devaststaing impact on their business.

Barrie Fitzpatrick and son Colin (34) opened Formet metal works at Great paxton in 1981.

A planning application has been submitted to Huntingdon District Council for the mast by T-Mobile, next to the businessmen's factory on the Harley Works industrial estate, Paxton Hill.

The pair are concerned radio waves from the monopole could affect a sensitive laser which is crucil to the factory's production of sheet metal.

Barrie Fitzpatrick, managing director of Formet, claimed any interference to the Amada 2610v machine could damage the business and even threaten the jobs of its seven workers.

He said: "It is more the unknown that we are frightened of. We have a laser machine that handles every bit of production we do.

"If they were to put the mast up and it did affect the machine we would have to close the factory. We live and die by that machine.

"I am worried about the health side, and I don't like phone masts, but if we are going to live with mobile phones they have to go somewhere.

"But why they need to put it right next to a building I don't know?"

The company has written to the district council objecting to the siting of the monopole.

Colin Fitzpatrick, general manager of Formet, said: "We are only a small business, and if we couldn't afford to move. There is just no need to have it that close to the factory."

The latest objections follow concerns reported in the Town Crier last week from mother-of-three, Fleur Bateman, who is worried about potential health risks from the phone mast.

Objections to the planning application must be made to Huntingdon District Council before Wednesday next week.

A spokesman for the mobile phone company said: "T-Mobile understands there sometimes can be concerns when locating base stations in communities.

"Base stations are low powered radio transmitters, and it is important to recognise that the radio frequency signal from mast the represents just one source of RF (Radio Frequency) in everyday lives.

"Based on over 40 years of research, T-Mobile is confident that its base stations, operating within strict national and international guidelines (recognised by the World Health Organisation), do not present a health risk to any member of the public."

Die Gewerkschaft Erziehung und Wissenschaft (GEW) hat das am Freitag vom Bundesrat bestätigte "Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz" scharf kritisiert. Künftig würden sich Beschäftigte in der Drittmittelforschung noch mehr als bisher von einem befristeten Arbeitsvertrag zum nächsten hangeln müssen. "Unbefristet befristet" - so laute die Perspekte für die Wissenschaftler, kritisiert GEW-Vorstand Andreas Keller. Deutschland brauche vielmehr "attraktive Arbeitsbedingungen" in der Wissenschaft, "um in Forschung und Lehre qualitativ hochwertige Leistungen und Innovationen zu erbringen". Dieses Ziel verfehle das neue Gesetz. Mit der Ausweitung der Befristungsregelungen würden den Beschäftigten elementare Schutzrechte genommen.

Phone giant's victory for taller mast

By Rob Devey

PHONE giant T-Mobile has won its appeal to install a taller mast outside Horwich Leisure Centre.

Bolton Council's planning and highways committee last year threw out the company's plan to replace the existing 15-metre mast near the centre entrance with a 20-metre version.

Residents had objected and councillors said the increased height would make the mast an even greater blot on the landscape.

T-Mobile, which argued that a taller mast was needed to improve network coverage, appealed and has now been granted permission for the new mast by Government planning inspector Bruce Barnett.

Mr Barnett said that the difference in height "would not be particularly noticeable", adding that T-Mobile had met guidelines on raidation.

However, campaigners are hopeful the council can still block the mast in its capacity as landowner.

A council spokesman said: "While planning permission has been granted on appeal, consent still has to be granted by Bolton Council and the Bolton Community Leisure Trust as landowners and occupiers.

"A report will be presented to the executive member for development."

Last year, Cllr Andy Morgan was backed by fellow councillors in a motion banning masts on council land but subsequent legal advice means the authority still looks at each case on its merits.

He said: "I will be urging executive member Cllr Ebrahim Adia to take account of last year's motion, which means we do not routinely put masts on our buildings.

"I'm very disappointed with the inspector's decision. It seems madness for some faceless bureaucrat at the planning inspectorate in Bristol to overturn a decision made by local councillors.

"There's no proof about whether masts are safe and some people may unwittingly use the leisure centre not knowing about the mast".

He said plenty of youngsters used the centre and the independent Stewart Report into masts urged caution about allowing masts near children.

Cllr Barbara Ronson, leader of the Liberal Democrat group and the party's spokesman for development, said she was also unhappy with the decision.

Cllr Ronson, who is a Horwich borough and town councillor, added: "I would be very disappointed if, having turned down the mast on planning grounds, the council now allowed it as landowners."

Horwich town councillor Lynn Rock said: "It's bad enough having the existing mast, I don't want to see it being made bigger.

"A leisure centre is the wrong place for masts."

The mast sparked a storm of protest when it appeared in 1999. The council receives £5,500 a year in rent for the structure which goes towards a sports and recreation but is not necessarily spent in Horwich.

It says it would seek to negotiate an increased rent if the replacement mast is approved.

"If UnitedHealth can be shown to have broken the law - and let's just say that this company, which is America's second largest health insurer, has a reputation for playing even rougher than its competitors - by all means, let's see justice done.

Kampagnenwoche, beginnend am 2. April 07

Dezentrale Aktionen

In der Aktionswoche sollen vielfältige dezentrale Aktionen von allen lokalen Bündnissen umgesetzt werden. Aktionsideen gehen von der Magdeburger "Mauer der Grausamkeiten" über "Sattessen im Supermarkt", Aktivitäten gegen bestimmte Träger von 1-Euro-Jobs, evtl. Blockaden des Fernverkehrs und der Idee, dass Eltern ihre Kinder bei der Behörde abgeben, weil sie die Kinder von den Hartz-Regelleistungen nicht mehr versorgen können, bis zu Aktionen für ein Sozialticket, wie sie in Leipzig stattfanden und stattfinden. Einige Aktionsideen wurden auf dem Treffen in Göttingen genannt und können im Protokoll nachgelesen werden. Dies sind aber sicherlich nicht alle. Wir denken, dass ein gegenseitiger Austausch nicht nur durch den Besuch der anderen Webseiten möglich ist, sondern auch das Online-Diskussions-Forum sich für die gegenseitige Anregung und Diskussion der verschiedensten Aktionsideen eignet. Ihr findet es unter http://www.aktive-erwerbslose.de/forum und Ihr könnt Euch dort registrieren lassen. Kampagnenmaterial, welches bundesweit verwendet werden kann, wird in den nächsten Wochen durch den Koordinierungskreis erarbeitet werden. Auch hierzu würden wir uns über Anregungen freuen. Es sollen Flugblätter für die Erläuterung unserer Forderungen erstellt werden. In ihnen sollen auch die Hintergründe, die in diesem Zusammenhang von Bedeutung sind, wie verfehlte unsoziale Steuerpolitik und andere wichtige Tatsachen und Betrachtungen in einfacher Form dargestellt werden. Außerdem sollen für die Aktiven vor Ort häufig gestellte Fragen und Antworten darauf zusammen gestellt werden, damit wir als Sozialproteste gemeinsam in der Öffentlichkeit und beim persönlichen Gespräch auf der Straße gezielt die Diskussionen in dieser Gesellschaft weiter beeinflussen können.

Residents fight new mast plans

By Sue Vickers

Residents protesting against the Pickersleigh Road phone mast this week.

PICKERSLEIGH Road protesters want to know where are all the trees that are supposed to camouflage a proposed 40ft high mast.

Residents living near the site say claims by mobile phone company Hutchison 3G that the mast will be disguised by mature trees nearby is nonsense.

"Where are the trees they are talking about? There's a broad green sward but no trees here. The mast won't be disguised at all," said Hilda Forsyth, who is determined, along with neighbours, to fight the phone company's proposal.

"We are not having the mast here and that's final. It's too tall, too near our houses. Why should we have to look at it and live right next to it?" said Mrs Forsyth.

She said she and other residents had concerns about the safety of the mast.

"A friend living near a phone mast in Scotland died from cancer. No one really knows what the risks are. I know I don't want to sleep with a mast less than 50 yards from my bedroom window," said Mrs Forsyth.

“We are not having the mast here and that’s final. It’s too tall, too near our houses. Why should we have to look at it and live right next to it?”
Hilda Forsyth


Signatures for a petition against the mast are already being collected and angry residents have put up banners protesting against the mast in their gardens.

A planning application for the mast, described as a slimline monopole structure painted green, has been made to Malvern Hills District Council.

Originally the company wanted the mast on land near Bicknells garage but this fell through.

Alternative sites considered by Hutchison 3G include the council's former depot site, where the new health centre is being built.

Hutchison 3G spokesman Mike Dobson said the company recognised peoples' right to protest and it was important the planning process was followed comprehensively, in order that their objections could be considered appropriately.

"I'd like to reassure people the equipment is low-powered and well within international guidelines as recognised by the World Health Organisation," he said.

Families' phone mast fight

PETER WALSH
16 February 2007 08:48

Families were horrified to discover a mobile phone mast could be installed near their homes, a community pub - and a 12-apartment development which has yet to be built.

Telecommunications giant T-Mobile has submitted plans to build the mast, with associated equipment cabinets, next to the King Edward VII pub on Aylsham Road, Norwich.

The site is close to homes, sheltered housing at Edmund Bacon Court, the Royal British Legion's branch headquarters and is also just across the road from Aylsham Road Motor Company - which is to be developed into flats by the end of the year.

Deborah Judge, who has lived on Aylsham Road for the past 25 years, said she was “appalled” at plans for the mast so close to people's homes and would be opposing it.

“That's absolutely unacceptable - it's a disaster,” she said. “The health issues have not been proven either way, but you can't just take risks with these sorts of things.

“It's going to make the price of the property drop dramatically - it's absolutely dreadful.”

Damon Aspland, a sales manager at Aylsham Road Motor Company, which is just across the road from the pub where the mast would be put said he did not think it was suitable for the area - particularly with apartments due to be built on the site.

“If I was thinking about buying one of those flats going here it would be a no-no,” he said. “I just think its technology which hasn't been proven and they are using people like us as guinea pigs.” Mr Aspland, who lives in the Bowthorpe area, said he thinks masts should be sited away from people. The Evening News has campaigned against the installation of mobile phone masts near homes and schools until it is proved they are safe.

Dr Ian Gibson, MP for Norwich North, said: “It's a fight that's going on everywhere. I'm still waiting to hear what the new planning laws will say about it, but the government are prevaricating and should just go for it.”

A spokesman for T-Mobile said the mast was needed to provide a “quality service”. “Without mobile phone base stations, mobile phones simply do not work,” he said. “All of our installations comply with stringent national and international guidelines.”

‘Sneaky’ phone firm moves

Angry residents in Shenley have described a phone company as underhand' and sneaky' after failing to take down a mast it had been ordered to remove this week.

Hertsmere Borough Council issued an enforcement notice for T-Mobile to remove the temporary mast at London Colney Cricket Club in Green Street by Wednesday. But, after the company removed the mast from the enforcement zone, it was erected again just outside the specified area.

Samantha Gee, 37, from London Road, Shenley, said: "I am very dissapointed that they have done whatever they want to do again. It shows that the council does not have any power to stop them. It certainly does not restore my faith in the system. It is an underhand way of dealing with this. It is just sneaky."

The temporary mast was erected nearly four years ago after a mast on Shenley Water Tower, in Porters Park estate, had to be removed when renovation work started on the building at the beginning of 2003. Another mast, owned by O2, was given permission for the cricket ground because it was to be shared with the emergency services.

Shenley councillor Rosemary Gilligan said: "It was so obvious that they T-Mobile have been playing the system until the technology changed to allow them to share the O2 airwaves mast. They have now taken it out of the enforcement zone but have moved it, saying it is an emergency. They have had more than a year to plan the removal of the mast, so how can they say it is an emergency?

"It is definitely a matter that the council is going to take really seriously. I think enough is enough and I am really cross they have blatantly taken advantage of the system. T-Mobile has really taken it to the limit and the council is going to make sure they abide by the decision of the inspectors."

Hertsmere planning officer Chris Lewcock said: "We are exploring the legal implications of this with our advisers. But we are somewhat dissappointed with T-Mobile's approach to this matter."

A spokeswoman for T-Mobile said: "T-Mobile has fully complied with enforcement notice issued and will be looking for an alternative site for a permanent mast in the area, to ensure a high level of service for our customers."

How Feds' Top Environmental Prosecutor Built Home With Big-Oil Lobbyist

A House committee will investigate and request documents on a real estate deal involving the government's top environmental prosecutor and ConocoPhillips's top lobbyist, and also legal agreements between the government and the oil company. The inquiry by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee was announced hours after The Associated Press reported that the prosecutor, Sue Ellen Wooldridge, bought a $1 million vacation home with ConocoPhillips Vice President Donald R. Duncan, nine months before agreeing to let the company delay a half-billion-dollar pollution cleanup.
