College to fight phone mast plan

Campaigners are to go into battle again over plans for a mobile phone mast close to Preston College and two secondary schools.

In June the college joined forces with locals to get a bid for an 11.8m mast thrown out by Preston Council planners.

But mobile phone giant Orange has submitted a revised application to erect a mast on land off St Vincent's Road in Fulwood, near Archbishop Temple CE High School and Corpus Christi Catholic Sports College.

The only significant amendments are that the mast will be of different design and sited 50cm to the right of the previous application.

Planning officials, who have recieved 19 objections to the new application, will consider the proposal in January.

A spokesman for Preston College said: "We are objecting to the mast again, due to its proposed location being in close proximity to the college and the health risk this poses to our staff, students and residents."

A local mother-of-two, who did not wish to be named, said said: "No matter how many reports Orange throw at us saying it is safe, they are not going to convince me there is no risk at all."

Orange spokesman Duncan McGraw insisted a mast was necessary for the area after the company was ordered to take a mast off the roof of nearby Sharoe Green Hospital.

He added: "We understand the concerns of residents, but we can assure them radiation levels are 1000s of times lower than international guidelines."
