Protesters battle against mast plans

Apr 4 2007

By Will Harris, Crewe Chronicle

ANGRY residents are protesting about plans for a mobile phone mast near to four schools.

A letter has been sent to homes around the suggested site at the junction of Readesdale Avenue and Valley Road in Crewe, highlighting the proposals which will include a 12-metre mast, three antennas, a transmission dish and equipment cabinet at ground level.

Installation company Stappard Howes wants to build it on behalf of telecommunications giants Vodafone, stating that it is the best environ-mental and technical solution.

A petition has been started against the scheme. Cllr Jacquie Weatherill, who lives close to the site in Dane Bank Avenue, said: 'I have already voiced my opinion against this proposal, and a letter has been sent to Stappard Howes. I believe the local schools and residents have written as well.

'This mast would be right in the heart of a residential area, and there are four schools in close proximity. The number of children that might be affected is huge, making it a totally unsuitable site.

'I have taken phone calls and e-mails from concerned residents, while others haven't received the company's correspondence at all. I will continue to fight against this proposal.'

Resident Robert Allen, who lives in Wistaston Avenue added: 'My fear is for kids walking so close on their way to and from school. We have to protect their interests, and if Vodafone submits an application to the council, I'm sure we will all voice our objections.'

A Vodafone spokesman said: 'We are undertaking an extensive consultation before we choose whether to submit an application for planning. It would be inappropriate to indicate a decision on this until the consultation is complete.'
