Bid to put a phone mast by play area

May 10 2007

A MOBILE phone giant wants to put a mast next to the children’s play area at Duke Street Park a year after a previous application was refused.

T-Mobile wants to install a 2G/3G pylon on the grass verge at the corner of Duke Street Park near the roundabout.

It comes a year after mobile phone company O2 had its plans for a mast at the same site refused by the planning inspectorate.

Residents are being notified of the proposal by T-Mobile for the 11.7m high mast with three antennas and two cabinets.

The end of the notification period will be Tuesday, May 22, which is the earliest date a decision can be made and people have until then to voice an opinion on the proposal.

An earlier application by O2 had been refused by Sefton’s Planning Committee after the plans caused outrage among residents.

An appeal was dismissed in June last year. The planning inspectorate said the effects it would have on the appearance of the area outweighed the benefits of 3G coverage.

Councillor Barry Griffiths, who joined the campaign against O2’s plans, opposes the current application: “I’m totally against it because it’s adjacent to the children’s play area and opposite the library.

“It is on the grass area near the pavement so it can’t be covered.

“Particularly if you drive down over the hill down Kirklake Road it’s there in front of you.

“I think with the problems at the park the box will be damaged and there will be graffiti on it.

“We need to get a body together in Formby to fight all these masts as and when they come up – a central group that could tackle all these issues on behalf of the residents.”
