Phone mast victory!

The TA have now announced that they will not allow the siting of a Phone Mast on the Kidderminster TA site in view of ferocious public opposition.

"Apparently the TA are worried about the damage the proposal is causing to public relations in the area", local Liberal Greenhill Councillor Rachel Lewis said today.

"The back down on the mast proposal is excellent news" Cllr Lewis added. "The champagne corks can now pop as we appear to have final and definitive confirmation that the mast will not go ahead."

"Local residents have put up a first rate campaign against the siting of a Phone Mast there and they really deserved to win the battle."

"I am delighted that the tide has turned and we now have a victory for local residents and common sense."

This victory makes it two in a row as Cllr Lewis has already seen off a proposal for a phone mast on the Birmingham Road pavement outside the Texaco Petrol station by the junction with Bruce Road. - 29.03.06

Phone Mast Petition launched...

Working with local residents Cllr Rachel Lewis today launched a petition opposing proposals to erect a phone mast on Kidderminster's T.A. site.

Meanwhile one angry local resident is spelling out the message loud and clear from the end wall of his house overlooking the TA site! 24.03.06


Phone Mast opposed...

Local Councillors and residents are opposing proposals for a telephone mast on Kidderminster's Territorial Army headquarters off the town's Birmingham Road.

Local Liberal Greenhill Ward Councillor Rachel Lewis said "the proposed mast site is overwhelmingly opposed by residents in Tabbs Gardens and other roads around the site. Residents are worried that the mast, to be attached to the TA buildings will be visually intrusive and unacceptable."

Cllr Lewis said that "the consultation document sent by the developers to local residents prior to lodging a formal planning application claims that the mast will be 35 metres from the nearest homes in Tabbs Gardens but conveniently forgets that there is residential accomodation in the building on which it would be sited".

"Access to the TA site is via a Private Road - Tabbs Gardens - and I am seeking urgent clarification as to whether the TA have the right to invite a third party - such as the would be phone mast installers - to use it as an access to their proposed project against the will of residents in the street."

"The proposal is unwanted and unpopular and I will be opposing it flat out!" - 16.03.06
