Families in phone mast battle

Families face a fresh battle to stop a mobile phone giant putting up a phone mast near a busy supermarket - just metres from an existing site.

Vodafone has submitted an application to Broadland District Council for permission for an 11.4m mock telegraph pole in Fakenham Road, Drayton, near Budgens supermarket.

The pole, incorporating three shrouded antennas and an equipment cabin, would be close to an Orange mast just 50 yards from the rear of Budgens' car park on Fakenham Road.

Noel Barratt, 65, of Fakenham Road, said he did not want another mast. He said:“I can't see the need for another mast when there's one already there. I can see that from my window and don't want to see another one - we don't want to see the landscape being blotted by them.”

People in the area have fought previous applications for masts. In 2001, the Evening News reported how families won a battle to stop One2One putting up a 10 metre mast just 50 metres from the Orange mast at Budgens.

Norwich North MPDr Ian Gibson supports the Evening News' Put Masts on Hold campaign, which opposes the installation of mobile phone masts near homes and schools until it is proved they are safe.

He said: “It's like being in a war against these companies - whatever we say, they continue with the onslaught. I hope the people who live around this proposed mast will get together and I am happy to help them (oppose it).”

He said companies should share masts where possible.

No-one was available for comment at Vodafone.
