Phone mast set to be approved

A CONTROVERSIAL plan to build a mobile phone mast in a Long Eaton residential area was set to be given the green light at a planning meeting last night (Wednesday).

Vodaphone and O2 have asked for permission to build the 14m-pole on the grass verge opposite 47 Longmoor Road.

Erewash Borough Council has received 51 letters of objections from townsfolk concerned about health and compplaining the mast would ‘harm the character’ of the area.

Council planners have recommended councillors say yes to the plan at a planning committee meeting tonight.
