Group calls for mast meeting

Residents protesting against plans for a mobile phone mast near their homes in Shrewsbury have called for a face-to-face meeting with company bosses.

More than 150 campaigners turned out at a meeting last night to discuss phone giant O2’s plans for the mast in Copthorne.

The company recently won an appeal to site the 41ft antenna on land next to the junction of Copthorne Park and Copthorne Road. Councillors had initially rejected the scheme, after opposition from 79 residents who believe it will be an eyesore.

They also fear it is too close to nearby properties, Woodfield County Infant School and St George’s Junior School.

A spokesman for the campaigners said: “We have no say over the matter now, so we want to see if someone from O2 will come and explain it to people and give them peace of mind.

“There were O2 customers at the meeting last night who said there is a good signal already and they questioned why they would want a new mast.”

The group is also calling for residents across Shrewsbury to support them in their fight as they believe the current case could set a precedent for the town.

O2 has defended the mast, saying it has made a significant financial commitment to the site.

Residents now plan to stage a demonstration at the proposed site on Friday.

They have also set up an e-mail address, no-phonemast @hotmail.com, where people can contact them and share their concerns.
