Residents hit out at mast plan

The Star Sheffield 14 .09 05

RESIDENTS are up in arms over plans for a mobile phone mast in one of Sheffield's greenest areas.

Members of the Friends of Porter Valley claim T-Mobile's application for a 72ft telecommunication antenna in a field close to Ivy Cottage Lane would spoil the picturesque landscape.

The phone company, which has submitted an application to Sheffield Council, says the mast is needed as part of its "third generation" technology but local people are urging the council to reject proposals.

Friends' chairwoman Ann Le Sage said: "We are objecting to this plan and we urge everybody to write individually. There is very little time and we must act fast if we are to stop this monstrosity being erected." She described the area as "one of Sheffield's greenest corridors" and added: "This would be highly visible and obtrusive. If the council allows this mast, how many others will follow?"

Friends' members claim the council failed to properly notify residents of the plans - by putting a notice on a lamppost.

But a council spokeswoman said: "We are only required to let the adjacent landowners know about the plans, which we have done. But we increased this to include a further 18 neighbouring dwellings."

Already 229 letters of objection have been lodged with the council along with a 668-name petition.

A T-Mobile spokesman said: "When a new mast is needed we try to reduce the impact on the environment with sensitive siting, innovative design and, where appropriate, landscaping. We are always conscious of local wildlife and conservation."
