Residents take action over mast

Jan 25 2006

Crewe Chronicle

ANGRY families are fighting plans for a 60ft mobile phone mast they say would be an eyesore in open countryside.

Vodafone has applied to Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council for planning permission to put up the mast on farmland off Wistaston Green Road in Crewe - close to schools, a nursery and recreation ground.

Residents turned out in force to a public meeting at Wistaston Memorial Hall on Monday night to form an action plan to fight the proposal they fear could endanger the health of children.

They are calling for support to prevent the mast and others springing up across South Cheshire.

A petition has been launched and flyers sent to residents urging them to object to the plans.

Campaign spokesman John Morris, 68, of Field Lane, said: 'The mast would be a blot on the landscape in open land opposite Field Lane and off Wistaston Green Road.

'That's near Wistaston Junior School, Westfields Infants School, La Maternelle child care facility and the new play area at Joey the Swan.

'Despite investigations by experts across the land, no one can yet rule out the potential harm of living close to a mast.

'People are fearful over the effects electro-magnetic radiation emitted by such a mast would have on their health and especially the health of children. There are far too many masts around Crewe and we don't want another.'

Wistaston Green Ward Conservative council candidate Jacquie Weatherill wants planners to stage a site meeting before a decision is made.

She said: 'Residents are concerned about the visual impact and possible health hazard of the erection of this mast, and in my view such an application should be fully reviewed.'

Vodafone wants the mast to boost coverage. Council spokesman David Snelson said: 'People have to February 10 to make their views known. The matter will then go before a development control meeting for decision in March.'
