Phone mast plans blocked

Wrexham Leader

20.07.05

RESIDENTS fighting to prevent a mast being built in their community, have claimed a victory over mobile phone giants Vodafone.

Wrexham Council’s planning committee voted to refuse a planning application to build a 12m mast on land off Sontley Road, Wrexham, just 20m from a children’s play area.

Residents were up in arms when just 20 of them were notified about the plans earlier this month and they formed a resident’s group to fight the proposals.

John Williams, who spearheaded the residents’ campaign, spoke of his delight at the decision.

He said: “We were all pretty much ecstatic but it’s an on-going battle. It seems mobile phone companies have had a fast track to planning permission in the past.

Householders

“We’re just householders, not legal experts, but if we have to get some money in a pot and get a solicitor we will.”

At the meeting, Mr Williams addressed the town’s planners, stating the main reason for the residents’ concern was the health of local children.

He said: “There are two pre-school children at the Squire Yorke, less than 20m from the mast. There are eight children within 100m. Most of the residents have a genuine fear of living near microwave radiation.”

Cllr George James, local member for Hermitage, said a recent report had concluded that mobile phone masts do cause harm. He said: “There are dangers that are being swept under the carpet.”

Wrexham’s planning control manager tried to reassure the committee that the mast met with Welsh Assembly regulations.

He said: “If it meets the international regulations it should not be relevant for the local authority to defer on health issues.”

He added that the radiation levels were of “minuscule proportions.”
