A DENABY councillor has slammed the trustees of the town's welfare club after it was revealed a controversial mobile phone mast WILL be built on the grounds despite a huge protest by residents.

Coun John Mills said he was 'deeply disappointed' by the decision by trustees of Cadeby and Denaby Miners Welfare to go ahead with the Hutchinson 3G mast even though an alternative site could have been agreed.

Coun Mills said: "What the welfare is doing is totally ignoring the wishes of the community that they are supposed to serve, for a rental income of £30 per week.

"The local councillors are, to say the least, deeply disappointed. I wonder if the 350 members of the welfare are content with what the trustees are doing in their name?"

Dozens of people signed a petition against the plans because of their fears for the health of local schoolchildren being subjected to prolonged exposure from the mast.

Mother-of-two Kirsty Meggitt of Tickhill Square, was among campaigners opposing the mast who believe it poses a potential danger to children playing in the area.

She said: "The trustees ought to be ashamed of themselves for allowing this mast to be put up.

"They don't seem to be concerned about the possible health risks to their grandchildren or the people they were brought up with all their lives.

"If they were 100 per cent confident these masts don't cause damage to the public, they would face us. We have had public meetings but they never turn up. We tried to contact the club but they just hung up on us."

Coun Mills said he had met Eriksson (agents for Hutchinson) along with community representatives to discuss possible alternative sites not close to schools and houses.

He added: "I agreed to pursue one of the three possibilities, and in fact have got this to a position where I believe that it can be delivered.

"Eriksson appear to have made no progress with the other possibilities, which are both existing mast sites. It appeared from the meeting that Hutchinson would move to an alternative site if the welfare would release them from their contract.

"I have now had confirmation that the trustees have made a final decision that they will proceed with the lease to Hutchinson 3G, and also had confirmation by e-mail from Eriksson that they intend to proceed with erecting a mast at this location regardless of the adverse public opinion.

"The Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation (CISWO), the freeholders of the site, seem to be reluctant to get involved in this, although I understand that they are demanding half of the rental income."

Hutchinson 3G has always maintained that exposure levels from living near mobile phone base stations are extremely low, and the overall evidence indicates that they are unlikely to pose a risk to human health.

Omega this is not true. See under:

The company said an installation was required to provide 3G coverage to Denaby Main in line with its licence to provide 80 per cent coverage by 2007.

The South Yorkshire Times tried to contact the welfare club and CISWO this week but they had not responded by the time we went to press.
