Campaign to halt mast bid

Anxious parents are urging residents to join them in their second-round battle against a controversial mobile phone mast application.

Hutchison 3G applied to put up a 12.5m mast on Stubley Lane, Dronfield – just metres away from a nursery school – but the proposal was turned down by planning chiefs at NE Derbyshire District Council.

However, the phone giant has now appealed against the decision, sparking a fresh wave of anger from parents who are worried about the unknown dangers to health.

Penny Collinson (42) of Oxclose Drive, Dronfield Woodhouse, has two children – one of whom attends Gosforth Pre-school – just 200 metres away from the proposed site and one of six schools in the immediate vicinity.

She said: "We're dismayed because they have appealed against the decision.

"It hasn't been proven either way it's bad or good, but why take the risk?.

"We don't think there is a place for something like this anywhere in Dronfield Woodhouse.

"People don't want it and they should listen."

A spokesman for Hutchison 3G said: "The original proposal for this location was placed before the planning committee and was recommended to be approved by the local planning officer, but was refused by the planning committee.

"The proposed slimline antenna and associated equipment will blend with the exisiting street furniture and the design will simply become an addition to existing elements in the local street-scene."

Penny claims 700 complaints were collected last time the scheme went before planners and wants anyone who hasn't made their voices heard to do so now.

Council planners rejected the scheme in October last year, because it is in an open, prominent location and would be detrimental to the character of the locality.

A Government planning inspector will now decide whether the proposal should go ahead or not.

Anyone who wants to make representations should write to:
The Planning Inspectorate, FAO Lucy Wootton, Room 318, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6PN, by June 19.
