Residents oppose phone mast

Aug 26 2005

By Charles Watts Maidenhead Reporter

FURIOUS residents are fighting to stop a 14.7 metre high mobile phone mast being put up outside their houses.

The application was submitted to the Royal Borough by T Mobile who want to put up the mast, which will have three antennae, in Shoppenhangers Road.

This has caused uproar from people living close by who were informed of the application when a letter dropped through their letter boxes on Friday, August 12.

June Haines of Worcester Close, is one of these residents and she was so disturbed by the application that she decided to draw up a petition to fight against the plan.

She managed to get 39 signatures and has now sent copies of the petition to various people including Maidenhead's MP Theresa May and the head of planning at the royal borough, David Trigwell.

Speaking to the Express, she said: "We are all absolutely fuming, these things are very unsightly and of course there are rumours that they cause cancer.

"My neighbour is a child minder and so has a lot of young children at her house and they are supposed to be more vulnerable to these things I believe."

Another concern of Mrs Haines, who has lived at her house with her husband Ernest for 20 years, is the effect it will have on the view from her gardens.

She said: "As our house sits sideways to Shoppenhangers it will overlook not just our back garden but our front as well.

"It just seems ridiculous that they are going to put it up by a lot of houses when there are three huge fields behind us where it could be put without bothering anybody."

Kobus Bensch of Mast Free Maidenhead, a group set up to fight phone masts going up in the town, has backed Mrs Haines's fight.

He said: "We'll hopefully be able to help her and give her some advice gained from our experiences.

"I just find this whole thing completely unacceptable. These companies are putting applications in when people are away on holiday so they can't make objections.

"They're just like a bunch of snakes."

A spokesman for T-Mobile, Sophia Parviez, said: "Based on over 40 years of research, we are confident that its base stations, operating within strict national and international guidelines, do not present a health risk to any member of the public.

"When a new mast is needed, we try to reduce the impact on the local environment with sensitive siting, innovative design and where appropriate landscaping.

"We are always conscious of local wildlife and conservation."
