Phone mast means I can't sell house


01 March 2006 10:26

A woman fears plans to install a mobile phone mast on a prestigious city road will scupper her plans to sell her home.

As the Evening News reported earlier this month, O2 has applied for permission to put up a 12.5m, slimline mast, antennae and two ground-based equipment cabinets on Newmarket Road.

But the proposed mast site, 221 to 223 Newmarket Road, will be directly outside Jane Malynn's home.

She said: “My house is in the process of being sold, but the people buying it cancelled having the survey done because they wanted to know what was going on with the mast. They might not go through with it now.”

Mrs Malynn, who has lived on the road for the past 11 years but is moving following the break-up of her marriage, said she would be objecting to the mast.

“There's still a lot of uncertainty about whether these masts can damage people's health.”

Mrs Malynn said other people living in the area had also objected.

Last month, we reported how James Lord, 75, of Glenalmond, off Newmarket Road, said he would be against such a proposal in a “prime residential area”.

It is the second proposal for a mobile phone mast on Newmarket Road in the space of a few months.

In December, campaigners celebrated after the city council's planning committee rejected an application by Vodafone to put up a 10m mast near the Newmarket Road doctors' surgery.

The Evening News has campaigned against the installation of mobile phone masts near homes and schools until it is proved that they are safe.

People living in the area have until Wednesday, March 8, to register their comments or objections to the scheme with Norwich City Council.

A spokeswoman for O2 said: “There's no evidence of any risk to health and the site is needed for coverage and capacity in the area.”
