T-Mobile plan rejected

Jul 29 2005

By The Huddersfield Daily Examiner

PROTESTERS have gained victory in their fight against a mobile phone giant.

T-Mobile were yesterday told by councillors they could not put a mast up - to the delight of villagers from Scholes, near Holmfirth.

More than 240 objections were received from people living near the Lea Mills site, off St George's Road.

It was feared the 60ft timber mast would get the green light after Kirklees Council planning officers recommended councillors agreed to the plans.

But councillors changed their minds when they visited the site yesterday morning.

At the Town Hall planning sub-committee, chairman Clr Annie Smith proposed the plans were thrown out.

"I think this mast is against the visual amenities of the people living nearby," she said.

"In the winter time it would be seen in its entirety. I would like to propose that we turn this down on these grounds."

Clr Smith had already told objectors that councillors could not turn the application down on health grounds, because the Government had deemed mobile phone masts to be safe.

But chairman of the Scholes Residents' Association, Peter Murray, said people remained worried about the risks.

"No-one can say completely these things are safe," he said after the victory.

"This mast would have been near homes, schools and nurseries and until we know more about the effects I think that would have been dangerous and irresponsible.

Omega we know enough about the effects. See under:

"We are absolutely delighted at the decision. We were not confident, but it proves the worth of site visits.

"When the councillors came out to see the site and what the mast would be like, they could understand the human impact it would have.

"There were 243 applications against this mast. We thought it would go through and democracy would not be done. We were wrong."
