Mast plan set to face council axe

31 August 2006

MOBILE phone chiefs who planned to install a mast yards from a primary school are set to have their proposals rejected.

Hutchinson 3G had submitted a planning application to Bexley council to install a five metre mobile mast in Park Crescent, Erith.

Residents feared the antenna may be harmful to children who attend nearby schools and launched an objection campaign.

Now the protestors are claiming victory as Bexley planning chiefs are set to turn down the plans at a committee meeting at the Civic Offices tonight.

Resident Harvey Bignell, who has chaired campaign meetings about the mast, said: "[The council] has had 500 plus letters, three very big petitions.

"It is the biggest uproar they have against any proposed mobile phone mast to date."

The residents, who are set to attend tonight's meeting in their dozens, have had the support of their ward councillors and MPs who are also against the mast proposals.

A spokesman for Bexley council confirmed the planning committee would recommend the refusal of the application.

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

Erith ward councillor Bernard Clewes said: "I feel sorry for the residents who I think have been put through an awful lot of strain as this has been going on for some time.

"I am delighted that the officers are going to recommend that the mast is not accepted."

A spokesman for Hutchinson 3G was unavailable for comment as we went to press.
