Mast group warns phone giant

Protesters have declared war on a mobile phone giant after city councillors backed their campaign against erecting a towering mast near their Lichfield homes.

Members of Stowe Concerned Residents Against Masts (SCRAM) have vowed to fight until the bitter end to see T Mobile's plans for a 15-metre telecommunications pole in Eastern Avenue scrapped.

The group is one step closer to winning its battle after Lichfield City Council supported its concerns.

Members fear the mast could spark health problems among residents and pupils attending Charnwood County Primary School, Purcell Avenue, and would be an eyesore.

Campaigners have launched a high profile protest in a bid to have the controversial scheme thrown out.

They have taken to the streets to drum up support for their campaign and have now mounted a petition.

The group has also visited 170 houses surrounding the site to encourage people to send letters of objection to Lichfield District Council.

The authority will make a final decision on the scheme next month.

SCRAM Chairman David Brain said he was delighted the group had won the battle and said members would fight until it had also won the war.

"We are very pleased the council has supported our campaign and would have been very shocked if there had been any other decision.

"The site is clearly inappropriate as it is too close to houses and the school. We are determined to fight these plans and will protest until the end."

Mr Brain added: "I would urge people to write to the council highlighting their concerns over this application. We need to leave no doubt of the strength of feeling in the community - we do not want this mast."
