Mast blast residents set for crunch meeting

20 September 2006

A GROUP of residents is hoping to drum up more support for their phone mast battle as they face round three at a council meeting tonight.

About 50 Blackfen residents are due to attend Bexley council's planning control committee meeting tonight at the civic centre in Bexleyheath to protest against O2's application to install a 12.5 metre phone mast outside shops on Days Lane.

This is the mobile phone company's second application for a phone mast in the same road.

A previous application, submitted in June, was withdrawn after intervention by the Highways Agency.

Paul Crudge, of Berwick Crescent, who is leading the No Transmitter campaign branded the new application, which proposes putting the mast on a footway island outside numbers 189 to 193, 'ridiculous'. He said: "The mast would be between two schools and literally on top of people's houses. It's not good.

"O2 have just moved it from one spot where the pavement was narrow to another space outside shops. It's a ridiculous place to put it."

Earlier this year, the father of two successfully led a campaign against T-Mobile's plans to install a telegraph-pole style mobile phone mast at the junction of Days Lane, Berwick Crescent and Fen Grove.

T-Mobile withdrew the application after Bexley council received 300 objections from residents who are concerned about the effect the mast could have on their health and on house prices.

Mr Crudge said: "If we can get enough local support for our campaign I'm sure we can do it again."

O2 have always stressed that residents should not be concerned about the effect the phone mast would have on health.

A spokesman said: "We have got a lot of scientific evidence that actually concludes that there is nothing to fear. We are only too willing to talk to residents about it."

Omega this is not true. See under:
