Giant mast project fails

Aug 4 2005

Widness Weekly News

ONE of the latest plans to construct a giant mobile phone mast in Widnes has been nipped in the bud by Halton Borough Council.

In recent months the council has been backing hundreds of residents across the town who have co-ordinated protest campaigns in a bid to block the 'eyesore' transmitters.

The latest O2 application to be rejected was for a 15 metre monopole mast with three antennae which was to be built at the junction of the Liverpool Road and Lower-house Lane, Widnes.

Residents are up in arms at O2's determination to get new masts in the area to support the 'Third Generation' telephone network they claim need bigger and more powerful installations.

But the council has acted swiftly to thrown out the latest proposals.

The first was submitted in December 2004, for a 15 metre mobile phone mast - the planning application rejected in January this year.

O2 then appealed against the refusal decision and in the meantime the company submitted a further revised application for a 12.5m mast.

Both have now been rejected.

A council spokeswoman said: 'Halton Borough Council has once again received the support of the Planning Inspectorate in rejecting a mast proposal.

'The council has had full backing from the planning inspectorate to refuse planning permission for a mast to be constructed at the junction of Liverpool Road and Lowerhouse Lane in Widnes.'

Deni Newman, of Halton Friends of the Earth, said: 'The controversy over the risk from mobile phones is heightened by the industry's insistence on subjecting us all to pulsed wave emissions 24-hours-a-day.

'The pulsed waves act in a similar way to invisible strobe lighting and the resulting interference on human brain wave patterns may result in symptoms such as altered sleep and behaviour, audio and visual disturbance and loss of concentration.'
