Residents win mast battle

Villagers have won a battle to stop plans for a 15 metre high phone mast on top of a nearby hill.

The objectors from the small hamlet of Falcutt argued the Orange mast and base station was in the wrong place.

It would have been unscreened by trees and would have dominated an unspoilt stretch of countryside. There were also worries at the uncertain health dangers to nearby homes.

South Northamptonshire Council ruled the mast was contrary to its planning policies. The council said it was too prominent and an intrusive form of development in open countryside. It suggested Orange reconsider the siting of the mast.

Orange has a right to appeal to the Secretary of State against the decision.
