No to the Fairfield Crescent phone mast!
Proposals are due to be submitted to erect a 44 foot high mobile telephone mast and an equipment cabinet on the grassed area on Fairfield Crescent in Newhall, Swadlincote.
The potential affects of these types of mast must surely make siting them in an area so close to so many houses and a school a cause for concern. With a significant number of mobile phone masts already in the local area, are more really necessary?
This is an area used by people of all ages, including dog walkers, and children playing, and although the planners have chosen to site the mast close to a group of tall trees, the mast is still unsightly in what is a pretty and attractive residential area.
We urge you to object to this mast, and also support our efforts to suggest any future applications are planned in non-residential sites.
