We will fight mast plan all the way


17 January 2007 14:11

Families in a block of flats in the north of the city have begun a campaign against a mobile phone mast being installed near where they live.

People living in Catton View Court, off Woodcock Road, were shocked to receive letters from T-Mobile informing them of plans to install a 12.85m mast and substation near their homes.

The Evening News has opposed the installation of mobile phone masts near homes and schools, until it is proved they are safe, through our Put Masts on Hold campaign.

Brian Minister, 52, who has lived in the flats since 1998, said: "This letter was a shock when it arrived last week. Most people weren't aware of what they wanted to do. It's quite tall and with the health issues we're quite concerned on that side.

"People are suffering from cancer and other conditions and I think there's a lot in it."

Mr Minister, a well-known face around many of Norwich's pubs as a volunteer charity collector for Cancer Research, said he has started to produce some leaflets which he will post through other residents' doors to highlight the proposals by the mobile phone operator.

"We've started a petition and are putting leaflets through people's doors," he said. "We're trying to get some support because people might not know what to do about it."

David Lowe, 53, who has lived at Catton View Court for the past four years, is also opposed to the planned mast. "It's outrageous," he said. "We've had no information about it and have just been told its going to happen. We don't want it and hopefully will be able to prevent this happening - we're all absolutely seething about it."

Mr Lowe, who is out of work but used to work for Archant in the public notices department, said he has raised concerns about the mast in a letter to Norwich North MP Dr Ian Gibson.

He said: "It's a health hazard and anyone living in the area for up to a mile will be affected by it. We don't need that being forced upon us."

No one from T-Mobile was available for comment.
