PEOPLE power has stopped a mobile phone mast

PEOPLE power has stopped a mobile phone mast being built near a play area in Liversedge. Dozens of campaigners were celebrating after Kirklees overturned the plans last Thursday.

Every councillor on the Heavy Woollen planning sub-committee voted against the application for the T-Mobile mast – despite recommendations by planning officers to give it the go ahead.

People power sees mast plan rejected

People power has stopped a mobile phone mast being built near a play area in Frost Hill.

Dozens of campaigners were celebrating after Kirklees overturned the plans last Thursday.

Every councillor on the Heavy Woollen planning sub-committee voted against the application – despite recommendations by planning officers to give it the go ahead.

The 15-metre T-Mobile mast would have been built on the BMK Industrial Estate – just metres away from greenery used by children as a play area. Plans showed that Millbridge Junior, Infant and Nursery School was just 70 metres away from the mast and homes on Bank Street only 26 metres away.

They also revealed the mast would have included two equipment cabins and been enclosed by a two-metre high fence.

But councillors agreed with protesters and said the mast would be too close to housing and the play area.

One, ward councillor David Sheard (Lab), said other sites further away from housing were more suitable.

He said: "The amenities the residents have at the moment are very poor. There is very little open space – and a massive area of industrial land. It is too close to the amenities."

Andrew Nield, who spoke for the protesters at the meeting, said dozens of residents had signed letters of objection to the siting of the 48ft mast.

He said the location was picked by T-Mobile despite being in the middle of a residential area.

After the meeting, at Dewsbury Town Hall last Thursday, he added: "It was an amazing meeting. The councillors were smashing – they got it spot on. It's the only green area we've got and that would have been taken away. It would have taken away our privacy also.

"It's not just that an area where the kids play was being taken away, there may be health risks too."
