MAST FIGHT BACK ON AFTER SITE MOVES 9FT

The Citizen Gloucestershire

10:30 - 22 July 2005

Residents have united in opposition against plans for a mobile phone mast near their homes.

A proposal for a 15-metre high antennae on a pavement near the Prince of Wales pub, in Cainscross, has been lodged with Stroud District Council. The plan submitted by mobile phone company Hutchison 3G comes only months after the owners of the pub, Enterprise Inns plc, rejected a plan to install a mast on the car park.

This followed opposition from residents including landlord Graham Lee.

The proposal would see a mast sited just three metres from the previous plot, although not on land owned by the pub company.

And the community has again reacted angrily to the new plan despite reassurances over the design and safety of the device.

Mr Lee, who has been landlord of the Prince of Wales for around 13 years, said he had concerns over both the design and health implications of the mast.

"It's not a very good site," he said.

"We have got children ourselves and it will be about 20 or 30 feet away from the pub, which is somewhere a lot of people gather socially."

Mr Lee, who lives in the pub with wife Sarah and children Jessica, 16, and Thomas, 14, said pub regulars had also voiced concerns over the device.

"My neighbours particularly are very concerned as it is on their doorstep and I don't blame them," he said.

Councillor Darren Jones, a member of Cainscross Parish Council, said the community was shocked at the new plan.

"People mainly have fears over the health implications of the mast," he said.

"I know there's no concrete evidence there are any implications but there's no concrete evidence that there aren't effects on health.

"I think a precautionary approach would be better than just rubber-stamping applications like this."

But Hutchison 3G spokesman Mike Dobson said the mast complied with all health and safety regulations and would not be visually intrusive.

"From a visual perspective we have tried to make it as least intrusive as possible," he said.

"And from a health point of view we do meet the very stringent international health and safety guidelines that are set down by the International Commission on Non-ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

"And so local people have nothing to fear."

Planning officer Andrew Case at Stroud District Council said health implications could not be considered and a decision was expected before August 4.
