Stop bully boy tactics Vodaphone. Say NO to the phone mast and base station monstrosity

This petition made change with 158 supporters!

The residents of Yardley Wood Road have been informed that Vodaphone and Telefonica wish to erect a 50 foot mobile phone mast and base station on a grass verge outside The Lodge Public House which will be allowed under the permitted development, we need to make our voices heard and object against the bullying of a large phone company.  The base station will consist of a meter unit which is 3 feet 3 inches high and 3 utility boxes - 1 at 4 feet 6 inches and 2 at a whopping 5 feet 5 inches tall! The base station will be huge and will be an eyesore, they are painting it green so it will blend in to its thoughtful!

Only 10 residents were notified even though the mast will potentially affect many more with its radio frequency radiation and EMF. Vodaphone have picked the first site they could find within the area with no thought or consideration for the occupants of the residential area, the toddlers in the nursery 50m away or the 450+ children at Peterbrook Primary School which is 137m from the mast! 

The equipment poses a risk to children of all ages from a health and safety point of view - children will climb/climb on anything, what if they fall and hurt themselves? The cabinets and mast will be a target for vandalism and the actual installation will cause mass disruption and delays on what is an already busy road and parents won’t be able to park.

If Vodaphone are allowed to get away with installing the gargantuan mast and base station on the grass verge opposite people’s homes what is to stop them erecting one outside your house?  

Please support our cause and say NO to the mast!
