Mobile phone mast still in place despite permission being denied

Aberystwyth Today

MOBILE phones company Hutchison 3G is resisting increasing pressure to dismantle an unauthorised base-station close to three schools and an Aberystwyth housing estate. A week after county councillors delighted worried teachers and residents by refusing retrospective planning permission for the Parc-y-llyn mast the tower remains in place in the yard of agricultural suppliers Country Stores. Despite new evidence that base-station radiation can seriously damage health the company continued to insist there was no risk and said the mast would stay while they decided whether to appeal against the council’s decision. In a move likely to worsen antagonism over the development, Hutchison refused to reveal the line of the base-station’s beam of greatest radiation intensity, but denied it fell on any of the area’s schools. Spokesman Mike Dobson told the Cambrian News: “We don’t want to say where it falls, we don’t see that it’s relevant. “It has never been actually defined or clarified in terms of meaning.” According to a government report, the beam’s greatest intensity is likely to fall to the ground at between 50 metres and 200 metres from the base of a mast, which would encompass homes and shops at Parc-y-llyn. Hutchison say “all areas of public access” near the base-station - which has yet to be switched on - would be well below international radiation guidelines.

Residents who witnessed the planning committee’s refusal of planning permission were jubilant. One, Ifor Jones, of 2 Clos Deiniol, said: “It’s brilliant. “I’m really pleased that it’s gone our way. “I didn’t think the decision would be so decisive.” Paul James, the Llanbadarn Fawr Plaid Cymru councillor who has led opposition, told the committee: “These telecoms companies find that site-sharing is expensive - that’s why they have put it in the Country Stores yard. “This is a victory for the residents of the area.” A second Plaid councillor, Alun Williams, of Aberystwyth, said: “The abuse of the consultation process, or playing fast and loose on the consultation process, is what these companies do. “To approve this would set a precedent for other gangs of men to turn up and erect a mast wherever they want. “We’ve had a great many applications for masts. “This committee has struggled to find ways to turn them down. “I propose that we turn down this application on the basis that they should be site-sharing.”
