MAST THREAT NEWT-TRALISED

THIS tiny creature could be the only thing capable of toppling plans for a massive mobile phone mast in Horley - after the government gave developers the green light. Residents fighting against the building of a 50ft O2 mobile phone mast, on the junction of Limes Avenue and Balcombe Road, have found an unlikely saviour in the form of a Great crested newt. The small amphibians – spotted in the area a number of times – are a protected species meaning that any development close to its nesting site would need a license from the Department of Environment Farming and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). The controversial mast is a "permitted development", which means planning permission has already been granted by central government under the Town and Country Planning Order (1995). But the presence of the crested critter could scupper the telecommunication giant's plans unless strict conservation rules are satisfied.

What a great story! Saving the Great Crested Newt from the nasty 02 mast. I am all for protecting animals and wildlife.

Hey, I have just had a thought............ if ill health around masts in humans is rare enough to be non-existent, according to the powers that be, then can't those of us affected claim protected rights as endangered species? I'm off to DEFRA to see what the score is.............well I do live in a sleepy ruralised parish. If that doesn't work I'll write to the HPA. I am sure M Clark would love another letter.
