Mobile phone giant's new mast plan

People are preparing to go back into battle with a mobile phone giant which wants to build a giant mast near their homes.

Vodafone has resubmitted plans to put a 20 metre-high mast on land close to the RSPCA animal shelter on Longridge Road in Ribbleton, Preston.

Council planners threw out Vodafone's original plans earlier this year. But the company claims it has changed the proposals from those dismissed in May because of the visual impact it would have had on nearby Grange Park.

However, people living close to the RSPCA shelter say they see very little different with the application and have the same concerns they raised seven months ago.

Martin Teeling, 46, who lives on nearby Acer Road in Ribbleton, said he would have concerns about the impact on the health of his daughters, Niamh, six, and Roisin, four.

He has now drafted an objection letter which he intends to deliver to local people and lobby members of the council's planning committee to vote against the plans.

Coun Brian Rollo, who represents the Ribbleton ward, sat on the planning committee which rejected Vodafone's last application after a wave of protest, including a 225 signature petition.

He said: "The feeling back then was that it would spoil the view of people looking over Grange Park, which is a nationally-recognised green space, and having looked at these new plans, I do not see anything particularly different about them."

A spokesman for Vodafone said it had worked with planners at Preston Council following the previous rejected application and agreed to replace the solid monopole with a more slim-line model in this application.
