Village up in AAMMs over plans for new phone mast

Campaigners against a phone mast have organised a public meeting next week.

And they are hoping that speakers from any other groups who have successfully held back the mast-tide will join them.

Astley Against Mobile Masts (AAMM) was formed after Vodafone announced a bid for a 36 feet high mast at the Astley Labour Club site in Manchester Road.

They argue that the mast is being planned for a heavily populated residential area and in the centre of their local village shopping area.

If approved it will be in "close proximity" to Astley's amenities, two private day nurseries, two primary schools and a large Catholic high school.

And they are looking for help and advice from other successful anti-mast campaigns around Wigan who should contact AAMM's Debbie Jones by e-mail at debbiejones20(at) AAMM spokesperson Adele Woodward said: "We want masts to be placed at a distance away from schools, nurseries and residential areas until there is adequate research to reassure us that it is safe.

"Why can't the new mast be installed at an existing site that is away from the community and amenities?

"The fact is that thousands of children walk, or travel, in close proximity to the site, five days per week to get to the local school.

"The emission of electro-magnetic waves and the limited on-going research available means that we can't currently prove or disprove their safety.''

The group now want Wigan Council planning committee to make a site visit to the location – preferably at a time when children are starting or leaving school.

THE meeting will be held at the Pensioners' Centre in Manchester Road, Astley (between St Ambrose School and bungalows) on Thursday September 28, at 7.30pm. Research information is available at Blackmoor Service Station, 363 Manchester Road, Astley between the times of 9.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday and 9 am and 12 mid-day on Saturdays.
