In light of today's story in the papers (below), I'm delighted that, with a little action, we managed to have plans for a phone mast outside the Ursuline College in Westgate, "refused."
"Seven clusters of cancer and other serious illnesses have been discovered around mobile phone masts, raising concerns over the technology’s potential impact on health.
Studies of the sites show high incidences of cancer, brain haemorrhages and high blood pressure within a radius of 400 yards of mobile phone masts.
One of the studies, in Warwickshire, showed a cluster of 31 cancers around a single street. A quarter of the 30 staff at a special school within sight of the 90ft high mast have developed tumours since 2000, while another quarter have suffered significant health problems."
While the jury is still largely out in regard to proven health effects, the evidence is, I believe, sufficient for society to think twice, before placing these masts anywhere near schools and young children.
