Meg welcomes new best practice guide for siting of phone masts

Friday, November 15, 2002

Meg Munn, Labour and Co-operative Member for Sheffield Heeley has today welcomed the publication of a code of best practice on mobile phone network development.

The code, which was published on Monday, is a best practice guide to the siting of mobile phone masts produced jointly by representatives of central and local government and the mobile phone industry.

Lord Rooker, Minister of State for Housing Planning and Regeneration said on the publication

"The siting of mobile phone masts can cause concern for local people. We understand these concerns and so this code requires councils, operators and local people to work together in partnership to find the best site and design for each mast."

Meg, who is currently campaigning with local residents to prevent the siting of a BT mast at James Andrew Close, Greenhill, said

"Phone masts can be extremely controversial. An application, unless it is in a purely industrial area, often inspires people who have never before campaigned in their lives to take to the streets in protest. The topic can be very emotive, so I do hope that a best practice guide will help to ensure that all views are taken into consideration when a new mast needs to be erected. It is important that local residents are consulted, and of course it is also important that the same local residents are able to get a signal on their phones when they want one. I look forward to seeing this new code in action."
