Must we have this mast in the town

Aug 25 2006

A PROTEST against plans to build a giant mobile phone mast in a town centre has been lodged by councillors.

Telephone company O2 are applying to put a 50ft (15 metre) mast on a pavement at the bottom of Pen-y-Maes road, Holywell.

The proposals, sparked outrage among residents and councillors when the mobile phone company consulted them in April.

Despite public opposition O2 have filed an official planning application with Flintshire County Council and say emissions from the mast will be safe.

As the plans were submitted during the summer recess Holywell mayor Karin Davies and town clerk Astley Jones have sent a letter protesting on the town council's behalf.

It states: 'The council wish to make the strongest possible objection to this application as the proposed location is totally unacceptable.'

The Pen-y-Maes site is surrounded by houses, close to town centre shops and the community hospital, next to a car park and part of the town's conservation area.

Concerns are also raised in the letter over fears for pupils in nearby primary and secondary schools.

An O2 spokeswoman said after receiving concerns from Holywell council they visited the site to explain why it is best in terms of signal coverage and to minimise any environmental impact.

'We would like to reassure Holywell residents these are low power radio transmitters and the World Health Organisation stated it is unlikely there will be any health issues regarding mobile phone masts,' she said.

Omega this is not true. See under:

'The emissions will be hundreds of times lower than from a mobile phone. The mast is a considerable investment to ensure our customers have good ongoing service in the area.'

A Flintshire county council spokesman confirmed the plans are being considered.

'The formal consultation period closed on August 18,' he said.

'It has not yet been decided whether the application will go before the planning committee.'
