Phone mast revival

Romford Recorder

16 September 2005

Parents who opposed a mobile phone mast being built near their children's school may soon face fighting to stop TWO masts being built.

Mobile phone company O2 wants to erect a 12.5 metre (41ft) mast and associated equipment cabinets and ancillary development on Airfield Way near its junction with Dowding Close.

This is close to the site in South End Road where T Mobile wanted to erect its mast last year and which the Parents' Association of St Albans RC Primary School in Heron Flight Avenue fought off last year.

T Mobile has now told the school it intends to make a second application to put a mast on the site even though its first application was turned down last year.

Now, the members of the Parents' Association have formed battle plans to fight off the latest planning application and have launched a petition and sending out protest letters for residents to sign and send to Havering Council.

PA committee member Simon Wiehe said: "We came back from the school holidays to find that O2 had written to the school with plans to site a mast in Airfield Way.

Underhand

"We are far from happy about this because we feel it has been underhand, by writing to the school during the holidays.

"We have only been left with a couple of weeks to make our objections known.

"Our concerns centre around the health risks of having a mast so near to the school, but Havering Council has told us we cannot object on these grounds as there is no proven link between these masts and health problems.

Omega there is a proven link between the masts and health problems. See under:

So instead we are objecting on the grounds of the location because it is planned for Green Belt land.

"Our main concerns are about the health risks though.

"In the Times newspaper last week it reported that a new report coming out states that excessive radiation can cause nausea, sleep disorders and lack of concentration in children."

The Parents' Association has also enlisted the support of Hornchurch MP James Brokenshire who is urging residents to send in their objections to the plans.

He said: "It is vital they exercise this right to ensure these latest proposals get rejected.

"I will continue to lobby for these applications to be rejected as they spoil the local environment and stand out like a sore thumb."

James Stevenson, community relations manager for O2, said: "We looked at the whole area and spoke to the council's planning people who were fairly sympathetic to us. That's why I'm surprised to hear that there are objections to it. I am very willing to meet with the residents to hear their concerns and speak to them about the health and safety issues as that seems to be their biggest fear."

Anyone wishing to object to the proposal should write to Havering Council before the closing date of Wednesday, September 28.
