Neighbours say no to mast plan

Jul 7 2006

By Matt Smith

EVERYONE needs good neighbours, or so the saying goes - and that's certainly true if you live in Widney Manor.

Campaigning duo Carole Robertson and partner Clive Raybould have taken it upon themselves to stop proposals to put up a 15-metre mobile phone mast by alerting 50 of their closest neighbours.

The Austcliff Drive residents claim just four letters outlining proposals by O2 to put up the base station including a 15-metre mast at Widney Lane leading to the train station were sent out by the company.

"We've taken it upon ourselves to photocopy the proposals and post it around to neighbours in Widney Lane, The Spinney and Austcliff Drive," said Carole.

"They were gobsmacked and really very cross because the proposal is very close to houses. It will be an eyesore and and obviously have an knock-on affect on all our properties."

The couple are now waiting for a planning application to be submitted to Solihull Council but have already planned to start a petition if they do.

Carole, aged 63, who has lived in Austcliff Drive for eight years, is no stranger to taking on mobile mast applications after successfully defeating Orange's plan for one two years ago.

"That plan was also close to the train station and we started a petition against it which was a success," she added.

"If 02 do go for planning permission which I expect them to, we'll start another petition."
