ANGRY Denaby residents are willing to do whatever it takes to prevent a mobile phone mast being erected at Denaby and Cadeby Miners Welfare. Doncaster Council's Planning Committee passed proposals by Hutchinson 3G UK Ltd for the 15ft high telecommunication tower last week. This was despite dozens of people signing a petition against the plans because of their fears for the health of local schoolchildren being subjected to prolonged exposure from the mast. Now Kirsty Meggitt of Tickhill Square and June Gregory of Woodlands Way are to spearhead a campaign to stop the mast going up. "When it comes to the health of my children potentially being affected I will do whatever it takes. I will barricade myself in the Miners Welfare Club or tie myself to a lamppost," said Kirsty, a housewife who lives with her husband Brian and children Shannon and Brian Jr. "We only found out that this had even been passed after reading about it in the Times. We shouldn't have to rely on the press to know what is going on on our own doorstep." Last week, Denaby resident Keith Drewitt claimed residents had not been given enough time to react to the planning proposal. He said only one school was notified and that was on the day it finished for the Christmas holidays and it was required to respond within 14 days. "Had I known about it, I would have got one of the kids off the street and given them a fiver to distribute 100s of letters to people's doors," said Kirsty "We will move house. We have tried to better ourselves by buying this house. Why couldn't they put the mast up at the Earth Centre or on Denaby Craggs?" Husband Brian added: "This is not just going to affect us, but also the people who work in the area on a daily basis." The residents are now set to arrange a meeting with local councillors and planning officials before making their next move, which could be a second petition. The original petition set up by Bernard Pygott and Keith Drewitt was only set up four days before the council made its decision and therefore did not cover as many residents as they would have wished for. "They have done as much as they can, and it is now up to us to continue the fight," said Kirsty. Mr Pygott also revealed that he had sent a letter to the Prime Minister and to Parliament. A Hutchinson 3G spokesman said the company had looked at other sites but they were either too low or would not have had permission to use them. The mast was more than 100m from the nearest residential property and would be five metres lower than the existing floodlight. The company had demonstrated ban installation was required to provide 3G coverage to Denaby Main in line with its licence to provide 80 per cent coverage by 2007.
