PHONE MAST APPLICATION GETS POOR RECEPTION

AN APPLICATION for an extended mobile phone mast to be built in Groveland Road has been withdrawn.

The proposal to lengthen the mast at St John Ambulance Station by three metres to enable new 3G technology to be installed has been met with widespread opposition from local residents.

The extension to the Vodafone mast would have meant that it overlooked Grovelands Primary School, prompting concern from residents who were worried about radiation.

Grandmother Sybil Lacey, 82, of Derwent Close, told the Gazette that she was relieved at the decision. She said, 'I am just so extremely grateful that the application has been withdrawn. 'We only found out at the last minute at the planning committee meeting on Thursday so we are all still really pleased with this outcome.'

No reason was given as to why Vodafone withdrew the application, but many of the residents who were against the plan feel that their protests had something to do with the decision.

Mrs Lacey said, 'I think it says something about people power that we managed to make such a difference. 'We all fought so much for what we believed in and have achieved what we set out to do.' Cllr Ian Haffenden, who was dealing with the planning application' said, 'One of the positive things to come from this situation is that it has really brought the community together. 'I have never seen such intense concern from a community over a planning proposal. I have received more emails, letters and complaints than I have ever experienced. I think that speaks volumes.'

Before the withdrawal of the plan, a Vodafone spokeswoman reassured residents that the mast was safe. She said, 'We are aware that people do have concerns but all our masts comply with the very strict guidelines designed to protect all members of the public no matter where they live.'
