PHONE GIANT UNDER SIEGE OVER MAST BID

12:00 - 19 February 2005

Parents from city schools and nurseries are signing an Echo petition in droves in a bid to stop the erection of a mobile phone mast.

Protests at Vodafone's proposed mast have come flooding in to the Echo via post and email.

And dozens of Exeter residents have added their name to petitions in shops and nurseries.

The wave of opposition follows the decision of the phone giant to start a period of consultation on plans to erect a mast in Heavitree Road, close to schools and nurseries and immediately outside the maternity unit of the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital.

Lynn Aggett's 18-month-old son Will attends the nursery at the RD &E, where her husband Russell works. She said she was very concerned by the close proximity of the proposed mast to Will's nursery.

She said: "Surely they could find somewhere else. This is a residential area. Our concerns are shared by everyone around, particularly parents at the nursery."

Opposition to the planned mast is being led by residents, St Margaret's School, Bramdean School and Bumble Bees Day Nursery. The owners of the Edwardian guest house in Heavitree Road have also strongly opposed the plans.

Proprietor Kay Rattenbury said: "We are already subjected to high levels of exhaust fumes from cars, lorries and buses."

The phone mast plans are currently in a consultation process and have not yet been submitted to Exeter City Council.

Jane Lee, from Otterton, who lost a High Court battle against a phone mast near her home, backed the latest campaign. She said: "It is so near to homes and schools. It is much easier for the residents if the plans can be withdrawn at this stage."
