Controversial plans for a mobile phone mast in Humberston will be fought "to the bitter end", councillors vowed today.

It's the first time in the history of North East Lincolnshire Council that anyone has tried to get a revocation order. The pledge came from planning committee members Coun John Colebrook and Coun Chris Shaw, who are demanding the council overturns permission for the mast, to be sited at the junction of North Sea Lane and Carrington Drive.

But Coun Colebrook is angry about Coun Shaw's claims that he was not shown a 505-name petition from protesters before a North East Lincolnshire Council planning committee meeting on August 26.

As reported in the Grimsby Telegraph, approval for the Vodafone 3G mast scraped through by six votes to five.

Coun Colebrook (Con, Humberston and New Waltham) has written to the council's chief executive, George Krawiec, calling for the council to make a revocation order, which would reverse the approval of the planning application. Coun Shaw plans to do the same.

But the order would almost certainly mean the council having to pay "a lot of money" in compensation costs to Vodafone, leaving Coun Colebrook with doubts his plea will succeed.

"But I have got to do it on behalf of those I represent," he said.

"It is the last option open to them. It's a very emotional issue.

"It's the first time in the history of North East Lincolnshire Council that anyone has tried to get a revocation order."

He hopes the matter will be discussed at the full council meeting on September 29.

Opponents of the scheme are expected to spell out their opposition during public question time before the meeting.

Coun Colebrook rebuked Coun Shaw (Lab, Sidney Sussex) for claiming he was not shown the protesters' views before the vote.

He says photocopies of the petition were clearly printed on page after page of the planning committee's agenda.

"He hasn't read his papers," said Coun Colebrook.

"He would have had it seven days before the meeting."

But Coun Shaw said he would not have supported the application for the mast if he had been able to read all the objections, which he maintains were not in the agenda.

He said: "To say I have not read the paperwork is an insult, I read what was there.

"What I am saying is that all the objections were not there and I am concerned I have made the wrong decision."

Up to 100 people attended a meeting in the Countryman public house, Humberston, on Wednesday, when those present discussed options available to stop the mast being put up.
