Protest over phone mast plan

More than 100 campaigners fighting plans for a new mobile phone mast near two Shrewsbury schools are to hold a demonstration at the proposed site.

They will protest against phone giant O2’s plans to site the 41ft antenna next to the junction of Copthorne Park and Copthorne Road.

More than 100 demonstrators are expected at the rally at 3.15pm on Friday. Leading campaigners will also meet with O2 managers and MP Daniel Kawczynski to urge the company to relocate the mast.

They say it is too close to homes and Woodfield County Infant and St George’s Junior schools.

A spokesman for the protesters said today: “We are hoping to get some of the councillors along on Friday as well as children and their parents. There seems to be growing support now for what we are doing.

“We are trying to get as many people as possible on Friday. We will also be meeting O2 and Daniel Kawczynski. I would like for O2 to meet with all of the campaigners face to face.

“There will be a lot of people standing at the mast site with signs saying Say No To O2 which is our campaign.

“We are also trying to get together a formal committee and have started a petition. I am sure we can stop this ma- st going up.”

Councillors rejected the scheme but O2 won a planning appeal last month.

O2 says it has made a significant financial commitment to the site. It claims there is no evidence masts are harmful and it would provide better coverage.

Omega this is not true. See under:

Anti-mast campaigners will meet tomorrow at Woodfield County Infant School, at 7.30pm.

Protesters have also set up an e-mail address for people to share concerns: no-phonemast
