Council sites up for rent phone masts welcome

HARINGEY Council hopes to raise £10,000 a year from allowing mobile phone masts to be placed across the borough.

Bosses could start marketing its land and buildings as prime sites for mobile phone masts in a bid to raise the cash.

The proposals are contained in next year's budget proposals and have been met with anger from residents.

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

She said: "It's absolutely appalling. Other councils have banned putting masts on their own land, let alone promoting it.

"What does it mean - that council tenants are going to get fried?"

A council spokeswoman also confirmed that it charges business rates for every phone mast in the borough, regardless of whether it is on council or private land. It can also earn rent for those masts sited on their own land, "in line with Government policy".

She added: "Central government guidance is to encourage public bodies to make sites available for telecommunications installations.

"In visual terms it can be better to place antennae on a roof, such as at River Park House, than have a mast of 50ft to 100ft in height."

Liberal Democrat councillor Matt Davies, of Fortis Green ward, said: "I am concerned that we are actively promoting more mobile phone mast sites when there are so many residents who have concerns about the possible health risks involved."

An updated and comprehensive list of the 125 mobile phone mast locations in Haringey, plus a further 27 locations within 250 metres of the borough border, will be available this week on our web site, //www.hornseyjournal.co.uk
