Phone masts: the growing risk


23 November 2006

HARINGEY is covered in nearly 70 mobile phone mast and antenna sites, several of them in public buildings including schools, a hospital and a church spire.

The locations of the phone masts, which many people feel could be a public health risk because of radiation levels, have been revealed in information released to the Journal under the Freedom of Information Act.

There have been masts granted on at least 67 sites across the borough since 1991 - 15 in Tottenham, 14 in Wood Green, 10 in Muswell Hill, eight in South Tottenham, six in Hornsey, five in Highgate, three in both Crouch End and East Finchley, two in Bounds Green and one in Stroud Green.

Sarah Purdy, who lives close to Fortismere School, Muswell Hill, has been involved in numerous protests against mobile phone masts.

She said: "I think we have too many masts in residential areas and near our schools and nurseries, contrary to the recommendations of the Department of Education.

"If people don't want masts near their houses they should think about not making calls on their mobiles from home. Each mast can only take about 100 calls at once, and if a mast has to drop calls then the phone company will want to put up another one to cope with demand."

The most recent site is the spire of the Church of All Hallows, Church Lane, Tottenham.

It was also revealed at a meeting this month that there had been one in Hornsey Town Hall's tower, in Crouch End, since 2002.

One of the earliest masts to be granted was placed on Haringey Council's own River Park House, opposite Wood Green Tube, in 1991.

Tottenham Hotspur football ground has a mast, as does St Ann's Hospital in South Tottenham, Coppetts Wood Hospital in Muswell Hill, Fortismere and Alexandra Park secondary schools, Alexandra Palace and Hornsey Fire Station, Priory Road, Hornsey.

Several masts also sit on council housing blocks.
