Fighting talk from phone mast objectors

OBJECTORS who successfully fought off plans to erect a mobile phone mast on top of a Hexham nightclub are preparing for a new battle at an appeal hearing.

And a residents’ action group has issued a warning to phone company Hutchinson 3G “we won’t let you walk all over us.”

Hutchinson 3G’s plans for an 8ft mast on the roof of the town’s Studio night club on Priestpopple were unanimously turned down by Tynedale Council in May last year.

But the international company will once again stake its claim for the mast at an appeal in Hexham on August 15.

Phil Roe, of Vine Terrace, says he and other members of 3G Concern are worried the mast would have serious health implication, and that it would be an eye sore in the centre of Hexham.

“We had a meeting on Monday, and if the inspector allows us to speak, we are prepared. The visual impact this mast would have on Hexham is frightening.

“We are talking about England’s favourite market town; it is a privilege to live here, and we have to protect our heritage.

“There are health implications as well. There is a nursery and a school nearby, and a lot of businesses.

“I don’t care how big a company it is, we will not sit back and let it walk all over us.”

Mr Roe and other members of the group gathered a 570 signature petition against the plans before they were turned down last year.

Since then, he says the action group has grown, with more concerned residents and business people joining the group.

Hutchinson 3G says the mast would look like a white flagpole, and that emissions from it would be thousands of times lower than the guidelines supported by the World Health Organisation.
