Phone mast plan is thrown out

Residents have spoken of their relief that another application to erect a mobile phone mast in their community has been rejected.

Preston Council's planning committee turned down Vodafone's revised application for a 20-metre lattice tower with three antennas.

They had previously refused a bulkier design on the Paddock, at the RSPCA shelter in Ribbleton.

Ribbleton Coun Nick Pomfret, who made a presentation to the committee on the residents' behalf, pointed out there had been a 375-signature petition from locals.

He said he couldn't see much difference between the latest plans and those submitted previously.

He said: "This mast will spoil the view looking over Grange Valley and park, a nationally recognised green space."

Coun Alan Hackett said it wasn't just an open space, but a well-used park area and said that some of the 12 alternative sites considered and not chosen were "red herrings".

The mobile phone giants had originally planned to install the antenna near Ribbleton Library but this, too, was opposed by locals.

The Teeling family, whose house backs on to the proposed site, said they were relieved by the decision and urged locals to be alert for future mast applications.

Mum-of-two Julie called the design a "climbing frame" and said: "We are delighted with the decision, or should we say relieved.

A Vodafone spokesman said: "Because the decision was only made on Monday it's too early to say what we are going to do. We have a right to appeal the decision."
