PLANNING LAW TWIST ANGER

This trend is emerging in other areas. You wonder if there is a backlog at the Inspectorate, as appeals are cancelled, and new planning applications are put in for the same site, or a few yards away. Careful scrutiny of the notification documents can sometimes reveal errors.

PLANNING LAW TWIST ANGER

A TWIST in planning law allowing a mobile phone antenna to be installed without planning permission has left a group of South Derbyshire residents feeling "gutted".

As reported in the Mail, campaigners living nearby the former Albion works off High Street, Newhall, were celebrating last week after a mobile phone operator withdrew a renewed bid to build a 45ft mast near their homes.

Mobile giant O2 pledged “no further action” would be taken over the proposed mast after withdrawing an appeal against the application’s refusal by South Derbyshire District Council. However, the firm has now confirmed a 12ft antenna is instead to be attached to the building — and planning permission is not required.

More than 200 residents from Avon Close and Queen’s Drive signed a petition objecting to the original mast proposal on health grounds, saying they feared emissions given off by masts could cause cancer. Part of the protestors’ fears centred around the land’s proximity to Elmsleigh Infant and Nursery School, in Queen’s Drive.

Avon Close resident Lynn Kaiser, one of the campaigners who spearheaded the drive to halt the plan, said: “We just can’t believe it.

“We just feel as if we have wasted our time. What was the point in everything we did if they can just go and do this? It defies belief.

“As far as we’re concerned, we are just as worried about the effects the antenna might have as the mast but we don’t think there’s anything we can do about it. We’re gutted.”

Queen’s Drive resident John Yeadon said: “I think it’s absolutely disgusting that they are allowed to do this, and so close to a school as well.”

Planners at the district council said when they threw out the mast proposal that they believed it would be of ‘substantial detriment’ to nearby residents.

An O2 spokesman confirmed the firm abandoned the original mast plan after deciding to install an antenna on the building.

All the company’s masts and antennae fall within EU guidelines on emissions.
