Phone mast protesters ‘sold down the river’

CHALK Farm residents have failed to prevent a mobile phone mast going up on their roof.

Despite a concerted campaign by leaseholders and tenants, mobile phone giant T-Mobile has been granted permission to put a 4.7metre antenna and equipment on the flat roof of mansion block Eton Rise in Eton College Road.

Eton Rise is part of a much sought-after private estate which also includes Eton Place and Eton Hall. The six-storey building has 124 flats and the occupants are angered by landlord Shellpoint Trustees Limited's decision to allow the mast.

Julia Walker from Eton Rise said: "We, the leaseholders, have been sold down the river. The landlord has displayed a total disregard for the well-being and quality of life of the residents in favour of their own avarice.

"This is another situation where the little people are trodden on by those who have the power to run rough-shod over others' lives."

Roberta Dale, 20, said: "I don't think it's a very good idea, it's very dangerous for the residents. I am worried about radiation."

Steve Bennett, 41, added: "I suggest all the residents get a petition together as I certainly don't want to live anywhere near a mobile phone mast."

Residents opposed to the application were concerned about the health risks, especially with Haverstock School just down the road, and the constant hum.

As the building is curved, many residents also complained they would have a good view of the mast from their window.

Sol Unsdorfer, director of managing agents Parkgate-Aspen, said: "Several mobile phone operators have applied to us over the years for a base station lease.

"The latest applicant is the only one to have submitted a planning application. We expected it to fail under fierce resistance from the residents' association.

"Possibly those objections did not qualify on planning grounds or were not sufficiently robust.

"However, the planning application was submitted at the cellular company's own initiative and risk without any prior commitment, help or support from ourselves or the landlord."

T-Mobile wants the mast to improve reception in the Primrose Hill area. Camden Council approved the application on November 11.
