PHONE mast fight boost

Controversial plans by a mobile phone giant to install a 50ft mast in Lichfield are set to be rejected after objections from residents.

Vodafone wants to put a mast on land at Shires Industrial Estate, off Essington Close. A 362-signature petition and 38 letters of objection were sent to Lichfield District Council.

Residents said the mast would be visually intrusive and have a detrimental effect on the character of the area.

They are worried about health risks and say the mast would be within 10 yards of some homes

Objectors added that there were already 19 masts within one mile of the city centre and said they did not believe other possible sites had been fully explored.

The parish authority, Lichfield City Council, has also objected amid concerns the planned mast was too close to residential properties and was too high.

Lichfield District Council's planning committee is set to refuse the scheme when it meets on Monday evening.

Planning officers said the mast would form a highly intrusive feature of excessive height.

Planning officer Stephen Hill said: "I am not satisfied the applicant has given full consideration to the siting of this mast and consider its location will have a harmful impact on the character of the immediate surrounding area and on the amenity of nearby residents."

He said the mast could not be refused on health grounds.

County councillor Terry Finn backed residents in their fight against the mast.

He said the plans were unacceptable because the mast would be too close to Chesterfield Road and Redlock Field.

Vodafone spokeswoman Jane Frapwell said the firm needed masts near homes because that was where mobile reception was required.

She said there was no limit on how close the masts could be to houses and that exposure was lower when people were close to masts.
