City council rules against artane mast

DUBLIN City Council has refused a planning application for a mobile phone mast at Harmonstown Road, Artane.

As reported in Northside People last month, local residents lodged objections to the construction of the mast.

The granting of the application would have brought the number of mobile phone masts in the immediate area to four.

Dublin city councillors heard the residents’ objections to the mast at a special meeting of the North Central Area Committee.

Cllr Sean Kenny (Lab) called the meeting when it became clear that Vodafone were seeking planning permission to erect the mast on the site.

Derek Quinn lives on Brookwood Road, close to where the mast was being proposed for.

He was informed by registered post last week of the decision not to allow the mast go ahead.

“I am delighted at the city council’s decision,” said Mr Quinn.

“I was informed that the mast was not being given planning permission for reasons of visual impact.

“I agree with this. They’re ugly looking things and there’s definitely enough of them in the area already.”

Another resident, Noreen Downes, also objected to the proposal.

Ms Downes had to undergo nine serious facial operations when she was diagnosed with cancer three years ago.

She had expressed fears over health issues she felt the mast would have potentially posed.

Cllr Sean Kenny also welcomed Dublin City Council’s decision.

“The cluster of masts would have been too close to residential housing at Harmonstown Road, Brookwood Rise and Ennafort Road,” he said.

“Local residents expressed outrage at the possible health risks associated with the intensification of mobile phone masts in the area.”

Cllr Kenny is now calling on Vodafone to respect the wishes of local residents and not to pursue an appeal to An Bord Pleanala for additional mobile phone masts in the area.
