Mobile mast gets a poor reception

RESIDENTS are fighting a mobile phone giant's plans for a mast next to their homes - saying their houses were ignored in the planning application. The occupants of three properties in Ashover are urging planners to visit the site and make an informed decision before siting a 15-metre mast and base on farmland off Hilltop Road.

A petition against the development, which is 400 metres from Ashover Primary School, has already attracted 170 signatures.

Dan Hadfield, whose home is just 70 metres from the proposed site is concerned about possible health problems associated with phone masts.

He said: "I have a four-week-old daughter, another aged three years and we may all live here for another 20 years. Big business seems to take precedence over people's feelings."

Despite his proximity to the site Mr Hadfield said that his home and those of two of his neighbours are not mentioned in T-Mobile's application to North East Derbyshire District Council.

He added: "I don't think the site has been assessed properly. They need to know that we are here.

"An alternative site for the mast was ruled out by T-Mobile because it was too near a residential development, but I have measured this and the distances in that case and in ours are identical."

A spokesperson for T-Mobile said: "The local planning office is well aware of all the relevant issues including the location of the nearest properties and the fact that the proposed site is relatively well screened by trees.

"On the issue of alleged health concerns, the worldwide scientific consensus is that there is no risk to anyone's health from mobile phone base stations operating to international guidelines."

Omega this is not true. See under:

Because of the proposed council strikes on March 28, a decision date for the application is not known.
