No go for mobile mast

PARENTS and residents are celebrating victory after plans for a mobile mast on a pub near a school were withdrawn.

Campaigners started fighting in September last year against the proposed mast on top of the Crystal Palace Tavern in East Dulwich.

Punch Tavern, owners of the pub in Crystal Palace Road, has now agreed with T-Mobile to withdraw the application.

Resident, lead campaigner and mum-of-two Lisa Precious,35, said: "Everybody is delighted - overjoyed. We were getting to the point where we thought it was going to be a victory for T-Mobile.

"We are not against technology. We see the need for it, and mobiles can save people's lives.

"But until research has been done, a cautious approach should be taken to sites near schools."

The mast would have stood 46ft from the ground and been about 260 yards from Heber Primary School, 56 yards from Gumboots Nursery, near Dulwich Medical School and near an after-school club.

Three petitions were raised with more than 500 signatures,and nearly 700 letters of objection were written to Southwark council.

Councillor Richard Thomas wrote to Punch Taverns in April and the application was withdrawn last month.

But the residents and parents of children at Gumboots Nursery and Heber School will not be resting on their laurels and are gearing up to fight again.

They want an existing mast on the Castle pub, also in Crystal Palace Road near Heber School, and another in Barry Road near St Anthony's School, taken down.

A Punch Taverns spokeswoman said: "We have decided this pub is no longer a suitable area for a mast installation and we have agreed with the telecoms operator to withdraw the application."
