Phone mast alley (Rodford Way) - Vodafone go to appeal

Back in the autumn South Glos rejected Vodafone's application for another phone mast on the Rodford Way frontage of Blaisdon, only a few yards from the existing O2 mast.

Now Vodaphone has slapped in an appeal to the Government inspector for exactly the same site, despite promising local councillors that they would reconsider alternatives.

If they get it, that will mean four masts in a row from Merlin Way down to the Sundridge Park junction - two from 3, one from O2 and this one from Vodafone.

Cllrs Mandy Sainsbury and Paul Hulbert have met the South Glos Council official responsible for mast applications and have been assured that South Glos will oppose the Vodafone application strenuously on the grounds of the cumulative impact of so many masts in such a small area.

We're doing some more research and will keep you updated.

    Thank you for 'blogging' this Editor.

    There will be no justice for local resident's if this appeal by Vodafone is approved by the Planning Inspector.
