DAD RAISES FEARS FOR SON AS PROPOSED PHONE MAST SITE IS 20FT FROM BEDROOM

09:00 - 10 February 2005

A Father fears a proposed mobile phone mast could seriously damage his five-year-old son's health.

James Hill, 35, is worried about the impact O2 antennas will have on Aaron as his bedroom is situated 20ft away from the planned site.

The oil worker from Cove is planning to write to the company to object to its proposals to install equipment on a floodlight pylon at Cove Rangers FC's ground on Loirston Road.

But the company said the pole already accommodates redundant Vodafone omni-antennas and was the best site in the area.

It has now invited nearby householders to respond to a pre-application survey before approaching Aberdeen City Council planners.

Mr Hill added: "I am really concerned for my son's health especially after watching a documentary about mobile phones on television the other night.

"It has not been proven they cause health problems or not but people are genuinely concerned at the rate they are going up."

He also criticised the company for the limited number of households they had notified of their plans.

But local councillor Kate Dean said O2 had done more than enough.

"They have contacted more people than they are statutory supposed to if its a planning application," she said.

Cove and Altens Community Council are due to discuss the issue at its annual meeting at the end of the month.

Chairman Andy Finlayson said he was concerned the 14-day deadline for submitting representations to O2 was not long enough. He added that the organisation will be asking the company what alternative sites it has considered.

Ken Leitch, regional communications manager for O2, said the company was obliged, under instruction of the Scottish Executive, to look at existing structures to erect masts.

He said: "This is the reason the site has been chosen. We have been working with Aberdeen City Council to identify the most suitable site."
