BAD RECEPTION FOR A NEW NEIGHBOUR

Derbyshire Evening Telegraph

Two pensioners who have lived in the same house for 40 years are devastated that a mobile phone company is to erect a mast outside their house.

Stanley and Noreen Manning said they have enjoyed a peaceful existence in their home over the past four decades.

But that will soon change after Derby City Council said it had no objections to the proposed siting and appearance of a T-Mobile mast which would stand next door to the couple's property, in Uttoxeter Road, Mickleover.

Plans put forward by the company show that the 15-metre mast will peer over the fence at the couple into the pristine garden which has become a haven since Mr Manning retired 13 years ago.

And Mr and Mrs Manning (both 77) will not be able to escape from it by going indoors because the mast will also be visible through their front window.

Mr Manning said: "We can't think why we've got to have it. There must be better places for it to go.

"We spend all of our time here. We both spend a lot of that time in the garden, and now we're going to have to look at one of those things every time we're outside.

"We're both very upset about it.

"It's all right for people walking or driving up and down the road because the trees will hide it.

"But, for everyone who lives here, it's going to be an absolute eyesore."

The development would take the number of masts already in place or planned in Mickleover to 11.

T-Mobile previously wanted to put the mast in a slightly different position on the northern side of the telephone exchange between Uttoxeter Road and Burlington Way, and put forward plans that met stiff opposition from residents last summer.

It put forward the amended plans last month.

A total of 74 letters of objection to the two proposals have been received by the city council from residents on the grounds of potential health risk, the unpleasant appearance and the high number of masts already in the area.

Keith Jervis (63), of Burlington Way, said: "We're all concerned about the number of masts there are around Mickleover."

Electrical engineer Hugh Thompson (47), also of Burlington Way, said: "Obviously, I'm not happy about it going ahead. The council doesn't listen to us."

The city council is unable to block the plans because the mast would be no taller than 15 metres high and is classed as a permitted development.

The council does, however, have the power to control the exact siting and appearance of masts, but a report to be put before the planning control committee at its meeting on Thursday stated the council did not wish to take control of these matters.

It said: "It constitutes a telecommunications development that would improve the network in this part of the city without having a detrimental effect upon local amenities."

A spokesman for T-Mobile said: "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.

"T-Mobile base stations operate well within international guidelines and we are confident they pose no threat to the health of people."
