Families fight phone mast plans

17 August 2006

RESIDENTS have vowed to fight a mobile phone company that plans to install a mast just yards from a primary school.

Hutchinson 3G have submitted a planning application to install a five-metre high telecommunications mast in Park Crescent, Erith.

The mast, which will have three antennas and two dishes attached, will be positioned on the former Riversfield Manor, an 1860 building.

Residents first heard news of the proposal at a public meeting at Christ Church Primary School, Lesney Park Road, last Thursday.

It is feared the mast may be harmful to children who attend nearby schools such as Christ Church, St Fidelis Catholic Primary School, Bexley Lane, and Erith Secondary School, Avenue Road.

Ken Lawrence, who is spearheading the campaign against the proposals, said: "Almost all residents are against the phone mast and people with children are worried."

Residents have found support in their ward councillors and MP who have vowed to support their campaign.

John Austin, MP for Erith and Thamesmead, urged residents to write to Hutchinson 3G to lodge their objection.

Erith ward councillor Bernard Clewes said: "I feel sorry for the neighbours and residents who are being subjecting to worry and concern.

"We support residents in their opposition to the phone mast. Residents are in a situation of which they potentially have little control and we will assist them.

"We will fight with them against the phone mast."

A spokesman for Bexley council said the planning application had been submitted and added that a date for a committee meeting was yet to be confirmed.

A spokesman for Hutchinson 3G was unavailable for comment at the time of going to press.
