New mast application in after refusal

AN APPLICATION by mobile phone company O2 for a mast on the roof of the Courtney Hotel in Wanstead has been submitted to Redbridge Council just one day after a previous application was refused.

The first application for the 15-metre mast in Aldersbrook Road was turned down on grounds of visual intrusiveness but developers have now changed the proposed position of the antennae.

The new application, coming so soon after the old one, has left anti-phone mast campaigners worried that residents in the Aldersbrook conservation area may lose track of what phone companies have planned for their neighbourhood.

Elizabeth Canavan, of Merlin Road, who has waged a long campaign against plans for a mast outside the bowling club in Aldersbrook Road, said: "It's dismaying because it's very confusing for people and it's incredibly difficult to inform people that there's another one coming up.

"There are so many that it becomes hard to oppose them because just as we get a refusal we get another identical application."

Rival company Orange already has a mast on the roof of the Courtney Hotel but, despite guidelines urging companies to share transmitters wherever possible, O2 insists that a new mast is necessary.

A company spokesman said: "The technical feasibility of sharing was outside what we could do. It's a prime objective of ours to share them but we couldn't do it on this occasion."

Council officers have yet to decide how to proceed with the new application but it is likely to be considered at a future meeting of the council's regional planning committee west.

Plans for the mast can be viewed at Wanstead Library in Spratt Hall Road, and any comments should be addressed to the chief planning officer at Redbridge Council.
