RESIDENTS' anger at phone mast plans

By Nicolette Allen

ANGRY residents living near the site of a proposed mobile phone mast are concerned about the number of masts cropping up all over Worcester.

O2 UK is planning to install a 17.5 metre pole at the Hylton Road Industrial Estate, Hylton road and another 15 metre high monopole in the residential area of Oldbury Road, St Johns, between Ambrose Close and Brookside Road.

Gordon and Pam Roberts from Ambrose Close said they were very concerned about the installation of a new mast.

"We don't know enough about the dangers of these phone masts to have them put up all over the place," said Mrs Roberts.

"The phone company could have chosen to install the mast in the countryside somewhere, rather than here in a residential area of a city."

City council planning officer Paul O'Connor said the council had received letters of complaint and rejection from people living in the Oldbury Road area.

"These rejections are mainly on the basis of concern about health issues," he said.

"However, from a health perspective the installation satisfies all international standards of safety and in terms of appearance, the mast is designed to have as little overall impact on the surrounding area as possible."

Omega this is not true. See under:

Spokesman for O2 Angela Johnson said a tremendous amount of research has been conducted into the safety of these masts.

"These are very low powered two way radio transmitters, with less power than a mobile phone," she said.

"We only put these monopoles where we absolutely need them, but this is a consumer driven business and the majority of people value a good mobile phone service."

A decision will be made by the city council's planning committee today (Thursday) with a recommendation that prior approval is granted.

• What do YOU think? Should there be tighter rules governing the positioning of phone masts? Do we need to know more about possible health issues relating to them? Write to the editor today with your views.
