Phone mast wait

A FAYGATE doctor must wait to hear the outcome of a High Court legal battle to move a mobile phone mast planned to be sited in full view of her home.

Jacqueline Tratt, who lives with her husband in half of Kilnwood House, Kilnwood Lane, Faygate, is challenging Horsham District Council's decision to approve a Hutchison 3G radio base station, comprising a 25 metre high mast, antennae and transmission dishes, just 130 metres away from her home.

Now one of the country's top judges has reserved judgement in the case and will give his decision in writing later.

She claims the grant of permission is unlawful when an alternative site for the mast is available, hidden deeper in a nearby copse, for which she has offered to pay any extra costs.

Dr Tratt says the owners of the other half of Kilnwood House, Dr and Mrs Doyle, also object to the mast which she says will 'significantly impact' their visual amenity.

She argues that the owner of the copse has no objection to the mast being sited deeper within it, and that this would have less of an impact on her visual amenity. As a result, she claims there is no coherent reason why Hutchison 3G should not be satisfied to site the mast there.

She claims that the council failed to consider these considerations at all in its decision, and failed to give adequate reasons for the grant of permission.

However, the council maintains that, on the information available to it, the alternative siting would not be realistic. It argues that it fully considered all the representations put forward by Dr Tratt, and gave sufficient reasons for its decision.
