Families win pub phone mast battle

Families, pensioners and bikers who fought a campaign to stop a mobile phone mast from being installed near their homes are celebrating after the plans were rejected by Norwich City Council.

T-Mobile had submitted plans to build the mast in Aylsham Road next to popular bikers' pub the King Edward VII pub.

But the mast would also have been near homes, sheltered housing at Edmund Bacon Court and the Royal British Legion's branch headquarters, and just across the road from the Aylsham Road Motor Company which is being turned into flats by the end of the year. More than 600 people signed a petition against the mast.

A spokesman for T-Mobile had said the mast was needed to provide a quality service and would comply with stringent guidelines.

But Norwich City Council's planners, acting under delegated authority, decided to reject the mast - to the delight of the campaigners.

Vicki Smith, 34, landlord of the King Edward VII pub, who had said the mast would be out of keeping with the area and would endanger the safety of motorists and bikers trying to leave pub's car park, was delighted with the outcome.

She said: "I am really pleased. We have had tremendous support and I would like to thank everyone for getting involved in the campaign."

Steve Morphew, Norwich City Council leader, said: "It was a really good campaign, where all parts of the community came together."

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