MAST PROTEST ON THE MARCH

Derbyshire Telegraph

An action group opposed to plans for a mobile phone mast will parade through the streets of Chellaston and Allenton this weekend to highlight its cause.

The Mast Action Committee, part of Chellaston Residents' Association, is fighting plans for a Vodafone mast at the junction of Parkway and Derby Road, outside the Red Lion pub.

Vodafone has already been given the go-ahead by Derby City Council for the 12-metre mast as it did not need full planning permission because it was less than 15 metres high.

Now protesters have discovered that Vodafone is planning to apply to the city council for prior approval for another 12-metre mast in Merrill Way, Allenton, near the War Memorial Village.

On Saturday they are taking to the streets to protest against the proposed Allenton mast and to try to stop the Chellaston mast.

The protesters are meeting on the green at the War Memorial Village at 10am and will set off from there at 10.30am, travel along Chellaston Road and Derby Road to reach the Red Lion pub at 11.30am.

The protesters are appealing for a marching band and cheerleaders to join in to help them make some noise and marshals to help it run smoothly.

Mast Action Committee member Philip Ingall, of St Peter's Road, Chellaston, said: "We want to show Vodafone that we're growing and we'll fight any application that's made in an unsuitable location.

"The parade will cause some traffic disruption and I am sorry for that. Don't blame us, blame Vodafone for proposing to build masts in unsuitable locations."

Earlier this month the committee held a protest outside Chellaston Junior School, in Maple Drive, to warn parents about the mast in Chellaston. But Vodafone said it would still continue with the plans.

The mast would be about 100m away from the junior school and 200m from Chellaston Infant School, in School Lane. 200 people have signed a petition against the mast.

A Vodafone spokeswoman confirmed that the company was consulting ward councillors about the site in Allenton. The mast would be for both 2G and 3G technology to improve coverage for voice calls as well as new technology such as picture messaging.

She added: "There is a tentative proposal for a mast at that site. Now is the time for people to give us their views."
