Thorpe's double phone mast fight


03 February 2007 09:05

Families are being urged to fight plans for two phone masts in Thorpe, just weeks after campaigners defeated another mast in the area.

T-Mobile wants to install a 12m monopole, plus telecommunications equipment and cabinets, on the island at the junction of the Ring Road and Pound Lane, opposite Sainsbury's.

Pre-application consultation is continuing until February 9 on plans by Vodafone to put six dishes on the existing St William's Way mast, to improve its mobile phone network in the area.

Campaigner Andy Street, 69, of Eastern Avenue, Thorpe, said: “My main concern is that people in the area don't seem to know about the plans.

“I'm urging people to get in their comments to the councils as soon as possible. Neighbours tell me they are getting a petition together but letters have more credence. With the help of the Evening News, we managed to get plans for a similar phone mast in Dussindale turned down, and we can do it again.”

Thorpe town councillor Peter Harwood, a governor of St William's Primary - close to the St William's Way mast, - said: “I'm particularly concerned about the plans for the St William's mast, because I don't think it requires planning permission. People should be writing to Broadland council, because it has a duty of well-being. The fear of illness can be just as debilitating as the real thing.

“It's regrettable that phone companies are still determined to go ahead, despite residents' objections.”

Last December, Broadland District Council refused an application by 3, formerly Hutchison 3G, to put up a 22.5m phone mast on land off Pound Lane in Thorpe.

Comments on either plan can be sent to Thorpe Town Council, before February 12, and Broadland District Council up until February 15.
