CALLS FOR REFUSAL

BY NICOLA HODGSON

Residents believe that their human rights would be abused if a 25-metre mobile phone mast is approved by councillors.

Seventy people have signed a petition objecting to the mast, which would be built at New House Farm, in Etwall Road, Mickleover.

The Human Rights Act means people have the right to respect for private and family life, home and possessions.

Exemptions include when something is in the interests of national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the country.

A report to the council said: "The objectors to the mast have raised the human rights issue. They assert that it is not a matter of overriding national security or public interest."

However, the report said that there was a public interest because the Government has stated that it wishes the public to have access to the latest mobile phone technology.

It is also considered that the distance between the mast and homes means there would not be any "material impact" on the human rights of people living there.

The location of the mast has already been changed twice by a matter of metres since the application by T-Mobile (UK) Ltd was first submitted to South Derbyshire District Council.

It was moved once at the request of the council to ensure that the bulk of the equipment was screened by trees and the second time by the company after the landowner asked that the mast be moved further away from houses in Ladybank Road. The nearest houses to the site are 300 metres away, in Paxton Close.

Pamela McCahey, of Howden Close, Mickleover, has signed the petition. She lives about 400 metres away from the site of the proposed mast.

She said: "We are not concerned about seeing the wretched thing, we are objecting on human rights and health issues.

"The people who want to put it up can't give us any accurate figures for radiation levels."

A letter signed by 63 people also raises objections including health concerns and the visual impact the mast would have.

The proposal is recommended for approval subject to conditions including that work on the mast should start within three years of permission being granted, and within three months of the equipment becoming surplus to requirements it should be removed.

A spokesman for T-Mobile said: "Based on more than 40 years of research, T-Mobile is confident that its base stations, operating within strict national and international guidelines recognised by the World Health Organisation, do not present a health risk to any member of the public."
