Phone mast rejection joy

28 September 2006

CAMPAIGNERS are celebrating after winning their third battle over plans to install a phone mast in a residential area, writes Emma Eversham.

Paul Crudge, leader of the No Transmitter campaign is jubilant after councillors voted against O2's plans to put up a 12.5 metre mast outside shops in Days Lane, Blackfen.

Mr Crudge, of Berwick Crescent, said: "We were really pleased it was thrown out. There were about 50 people who turned up to the meeting to protest, but we'd heard that the councillors had already earmarked it for rejection, so it was a relief when we heard it wouldn't go ahead."

This is the third phone mast application Blackfen residents have fought this year.

In May, T Mobile was hoping to install a telegraph-style phone mast at the junction of Days Lane, Berwick Crescent and Fen Grove. But the mobile phone company withdrew its application after Bexley council received 300 objections from residents who were concerned about the effect a mast could have on their health and house prices.

Then in June, O2 applied for permission to put up a mast in Days Lane, but were forced to withdraw it after the Highways Agency intervened.

After O2's second application was refused last Thursday, Mr Crudge said: "We are just hoping there aren't going to be any more applications, because we're getting a bit tired of this now."

A spokesman for O2 said the company would be appealing over the planning committee's decision.

He said: "We spoke to the planners at Bexley council after the original application and they just suggested that we should place it further up the road, so this decision comes as a bit of a shock."
