RESIDENTS OBJECT TO PHONE MAST

A New mobile phone mast could be built in Immingham, 250 metres from homes.

In my view mobile phones have not been around long enough to prove they are not harmful. North East Lincolnshire Council's planning committee will decide tomorrow whether to approve the 25m high mast, with six antennas and four dishes.

Should it do so the mast, to serve Orange customers, would be built at the rear of the Phoenix House site, on Manby Road, and the existing mast, at the ATS site, would be removed.

Resident of Woodlands Avenue, off Manby Road, Des Berry (79) said: "I would strongly object. It is the same as overhead powerlines. We have enough kelter in the atmosphere around here."

Neighbour Dean Smith (35), whose house is for sale, said: "It is not very good when you are trying to sell a property and having a mast built nearby.

"We have not had any letters about it and we should have a right to have our say."

He added: "In my view mobile phones have not been around long enough to prove they are not harmful."

According to a report, that will be seen by the committee when it meets at 9.30am in Grimsby Town Hall, Immingham Town Council has expressed reservations about the proposal, partly on health and safety grounds.

The town council also believes that it will be "detrimental to the environment", although Orange has agreed to carry out landscaping work.

The report states: "The proposed mast would be further from residential properties than the existing one. It is considered that the proposal is acceptable in terms of visual impact.

"The Government guidelines state that, provided a base section meets the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) guidelines for public exposure, it should not be necessary for the local planning authority to consider the health effects and concerns about them.

"It is considered that the proposal is acceptable on health and safety grounds and a refusal on this issue could not be justified".

Officers suggested the scheme be approved, subject to a number of conditions, including the removal of the existing mast.

An Orange spokesman said the proposal was simply to replace "like with like".
