Loddon asked for views on mast

10 November 2006

PEOPLE living in Loddon are being asked for their views on a proposal to put a mobile phone mast on top of the town's church.

Mobile phone network coverage has always been poor in the town and the Holy Trinity Church has been approached by a company about installing a mobile phone antenna.

QS4 Ltd approached the church on behalf of T-Mobile and they are looking to get the views of Loddon residents about the proposals.

If the plans go ahead the mast would be placed either within the church tower or in a replacement flagpole with the church receiving an annual fee for the use of the building.

The Rev Nigel Evans, vicar of Loddon, said that this is simply the beginning of the process and that no final decisions have yet been made.

“It's a process where we are informing the community that the church has been approached,” he said.

“So far I have heard no negative reaction to the proposal from the community. I have spoken to several people who have been very positive as in this day and age people need to be able to use their mobile phones.

“In a sense if they are going to put up a mobile phone mast in Loddon, it's best it's hidden away.”

QS4 Ltd is only obliged to consult with people living within a 30-metre radius of the church but Rev Evans added that the company had decided it wanted to hear the views of all Loddon residents.

“The last thing we want to do is harm our place in the community. At the end of the day if it affects the church's mission then we will not do it.”

John Swain, head of sales at QS4, said that even if the plans are well received by the public it is likely to be around a 12-month process before an antenna could be erected.

Whether you are opposed or in favour of the plan, residents are invited to send their comments to John Horsley, QS4 Ltd, Cody Technology Park, Ively Road, Farnborough, Hants, GU14 0LX or by email to info@qs4.com, quoting reference number A06468.

The deadline for views to be heard is Tuesday, November 21.
