Why this petition matters

Started by May Langan

Kings Barn Lane, Steyning

The mast at Kings Barn Lane is being upgraded under 'permitted development' and we believe this upgrade involves potential for 5G technology.

5G technology is being rolled out with NO proof of safety, NO public consultation or consent and NO health or environmental risk assessment.


Human Rights barrister Michael Mansfield QC is leading a judicial review challenging the UK Government over its failure to take notice of the health risks and public concern related to 5G - see www.actionagainst5g.org


What can you do?    Sign this petition and share on your social media.  Also you can write to the Case Officer for the planned upgrade of the Steyning mast at the following email:  planning@horsham.gov.uk (attn:  Pauline Ollive), copy in the Ward Councillor at tim.lloyd@horsham.gov.uk and the Conservative MP at Andrew@GriffithMP.com    Please quote reference number:  DC21/2606

Some further points below to consider:


- Published research shows that health effects from living near masts can include:  higher levels of cancer, cardiovascular problems, diabetes, depression, anxiety, headaches, sleep problems, memory problems and blurred vision


- Children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with chronic health conditions are particularly vulnerable


- 32 out of the 33 known studies on the effects of phone masts demonstrate negative health effects for people living near them


- Studies show that the ecosystem - birds, bees, other insects, trees etc., are being adversely affected by existing levels of RFR microwave radiation


- In 2011 RF microwave radiation was declared a Class 2B possible carcinogen - many scientists are now urging that it should be upgraded to a Class 2A (probable) or Class 1 (known) carcinogen


- A Dutch court has very recently ruled that health risks below 1 V/m (volts per meter) cannot be ruled out.  UK guidelines are 56 V/m
