Anger over phone mast application

18 January 2007

Mary Nokes delivered the protests to the town hall

FURIOUS residents are waging war on a mobile phone company that wants to install a mast close to their homes.

T-Mobile plan to relocate a mast from the roof of condemned tower block, Cadiz Court, to the busy Bull roundabout, in Rainham Road South, Dagenham.

They have applied to the council's Development Control Board to ascertain whether prior approval is needed for the structure, which will come complete with a base station.

Twenty-two residents received letters from the council outlining the application, and each replied with a letter of objection - all of which have been hand delivered to the town hall, in Barking.

Mary Nokes, of Rainham Road South, said: "I went on behalf of my neighbours to deliver the letters to the town hall so I could be sure they were received before the deadline for objections.

"We are ready to fight to the end to keep this mast away from our homes and our children."

The residents are worried about the perceived health implications of the 11.7 metres high installation, and possible effect on road safety.

Another resident said: "The location of the site, close to the roundabout, is going to create an eyesore.

"Such a prominent structure could prove a distraction to motorists negotiating the roundabout, leading to the possibility of crashes.

"There is already a similar mast erected by Three Mobile on the Bull pub, one per area is one too many.

A spokesperson for T-Mobile confirmed the application was for a site move from Cadiz Court, saying: "We need to provide a continuous telephone service for people who live and work in the area."

The residents vow to continue their fight against the mast at all stages of the application.

Representations must be made in writing to the council before January 25, and should include the application number: 06/01275/PRIOR
