Customers won't be mobile thanks to mast

20 January 2007 10:55

The owner of a mobility shop in the city has today spoken out against plans for a mobile phone mast outside his shop and other business in the area.

Telecommunications company T-Mobile has submitted an application to Norwich City Council for permission to put up a 12 metre mast on Grove Road, Norwich. the site is next to a parade of shops and opposite an eight-apartment development which is being built.

John Pillow, manager of Mobility 2000, said he was concerned about the effect the mast would have on his business.

“It's not good for the mobility business at all,” he said. “They will put a mast there with two big grey boxes at the bottom and I've no doubt it will get vandalised - the mess that's left outside here after a weekend is unbelievable.”

Mr Pillow is also concerned that people will have difficulty getting to his shop once the mast goes up on the pavement outside. “There are elderly people here all the time and it's going to be in the way,” he said.

The mast will be a short distance from the Trafford pub, and also close to a launderette, butcher, travel agent and a Tesco Express.

The completion of an eight apartment development, being built across the road on the site of a former restaurant, will also bring more people to the area.

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

People living in the area have until February 7 to make their feelings known about the application.

Earlier this month it was reported how families living in Catton View Court, off Woodcock Road, Norwich, were also fighting an application by T-Mobile, but for a 12.85m mast.

A spokeswoman for T-Mobile said she understood people's concerns but said masts were needed to provide coverage for everyone who used mobile phones.

“The use of mobile phones in the UK has grown at a phenomenal rate, with some 60 million now in use,” she said. “Without a network of base stations, however, mobile phones simply do not work.

“Based on more than 40 years of research, T-Mobile is confident that its base stations, operating within strict national and international guidelines (recognised by the World Health Organisation), do not present a health risk to any member of the public.”
