RESIDENTS are furious at proposals for a mobile phone mast near a children's day nursery.

Telephone company Hutchinson 3G UK Ltd have applied to Doncaster Council to erect a 60ft pole on the Paragon Autocare Breakdown site, Great North Road, Skellow, but locals plan to fight the move.

Robert Forsythe lives in Crabgate Drive and claims the mast would be only 80 feet away from his property. He said: "Not only would this be an eyesore but also we as a neighbourhood are concerned about the health implications due to the radio waves given off."

Mr Forsythe and other residents intend to write to the council and start a petition against the proposed mast which would be close to the Elmcrest Day Nursery on Crabgate Lane.

He added: "Our number one concern is health and I've done quite a lot of research and there is proof that masts do cause health problems. There is a committee in Sutton Coldfield which says eight out of ten people living close to masts have become ill."

Stephanie Darbyshire, Elmcrest's owner and manager, said the nursery was informed by 3G of the proposal and they have subsequently been in touch with the council. She said: "The original letter from 3G stated that the emissions were below the levels for concern. However, we are still concerned about the installation of such a mast so close to the nursery and housing estates. We would oppose any such installation so nearby and insist it is erected elsewhere."

Last year the council's planning committee approved 3G's move to build a mast on the Denaby and Cadeby Miners' Welfare sports ground, a site near two schools and a youth centre.

Peter Dale, Doncaster Council's Strategic Director of Development, said that public consultation would run until March 2.

3G spokesman Brian Spooner said: "We looked at a number of sites before it went into council and each was rejected for a number of reasons. Each site would have been discounted for a reason, whether it was poor radio coverage, visual impact or site unsuitability.

"This is the site we determined after the search was complete. In terms of health and safety concerns, the proposed station will have a ICNIRP certificate and there is no convincing scientific evidence that the very weak signals from base stations have adverse health effects."
