Public school faces storm over mobile phone mast

Feb 23 2006

WELLINGTON College is likely to give the go-ahead for a mobile phone mast in its grounds - despite protests from the owner of a neighbouring business.

Planning approval for the mast was given last year, but the public school decided not to let the phone company built it next to playing fields after objections from a neighbouring business park.

But now Lancewich company director Nicholas Martin, whose premises on Wellington Business Park are next to the school, has received a letter saying the governors are likely to let the installation of a 30ft-high phone mast go ahead after all.

Mr Martin is fuming over the change in mood by the school.

He has written to Bracknell MP Andrew MacKay and called on business park neighbours to fight the decision.

In the letter to Mr Martin, bursar Martin Sherwin said: "T Mobile have, in recent months, made a number of representations to the college and have gained the support of the Crowthorne Village Action Group - CVAG."

But CVAG founder member Carole Doran said: "What we said was we cannot give any blessing.

"We are not an elected body. CVAG's view is that we condone mast sharing away from schools and dwellings".

Mr Sherwin told The News: "A governors meeting this spring will be considering the matter. Planning approval was given some time ago."

He said the college was mindful of concerns that had been raised before and as a matter of courtesy they had let Mr Martin know governors were likely to allow the mast to go ahead.

Wellington College's 400-acre estate backs on to the business park which is near the railway line. There is one mast already alongside the railway line.
