Phone mast raises health fears for residents

RESIDENTS have hit out at mobile phone chiefs after a mast was erected in a residential area.

T-Mobile installed the mast at the junction of John Street and Redbrae Road in Kirkintilloch.

The application was turned down by East Dunbartonshire Council, but the company won an appeal to the Scottish Executive.

One resident said: "I have real concerns about this mast.

"It's been erected less than 100 metres from another mast which is in the grounds of a nursery.

"This was done without consultation and without taking into consideration the fact that there are a lot of children living in the immediate area.

Health issues relating to mobile telephone masts have never been disproved.

"The apparent disregard for residents in this area is nothing short of disgraceful."

Richard Owens, T-Mobile's community affairs officer for Scotland, said: "We do understand that locating base stations in and around communities can sometimes give rise to concerns and do everything possible to keep the public informed throughout the process.

"In this case, we undertook voluntary pre-consultation with the ward councillor, local schools, nursery and the local housing association.

"At the point of submitting the application we then did statutory neighbour notification for properties in the immediate vicinity.

"Dozens of studies have taken place over twenty years on the safety of base stations.

"The World Health Organisation said in May this year: 'Considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from base stations cause adverse health effects'."
