Phone unit sparks fury

By OLIVER CARTWRIGHT

Hodnet parish councillors say they are furious about a mobile phone transformer they have branded “an eyesore” at the gateway to their village.

Members of the parish council say the white O2 telecommunications transformer just off the Espley roundabout, on the Hodnet bypass, looks hideous and they want to see it camouflaged so it blends in with the surrounding countryside, or have it moved completely.

The transformer was put up by Central Networks but residents are upset because they believe it is out of place — especially after hundreds of thousands of pounds was spent landscaping the nearby bypass.

Parish council clerk Stephen Howell-Jones has sent a series of objection letters on behalf of the parish but conceded Central Networks had done everything correctly.

Emily Highmore, of Central Networks, said they had considered what residents had said but the transformer needed to be next to the mast.

“Unfortunately there’s nothing we can do about aesthetics as it is the standard specification and we could not paint it as there could be potential safety implications.”
