Notes.

The Conservatives did a deal with the phone companies when they were last in government to cut planning controls for masts, and now we have the ridiculous situation that it is often easier to get planning permission for a mast than it is for a conservatory.

In 2000, the chair of the Independent Expert group on Mobile Phones, William Stewart, recommended a precautionary approach regarding the siting of masts until more detailed and scientifically robust information on any health effects became available. This is also the advice of the British Medical Association.

However at the moment many masts do not require planning permission at all, and councils are not allowed to take public concerns about health into consideration provided the mobile phone operators have a "health certificate" - clearance from the Radiation Protection Division of the Health Protection Agency.

Commercial forces and the fact that the Treasury gets a very large licence fee payment mean the introduction of more democratic systems of control are unlikely.

For more information on the issue of mobile phone masts, see Mast Action UK at www.mastaction.co.uk or Mast Sanity at www.mastsanity.org (08704 322377). If you are concerned about the health issues then a useful contact is the Radiation Division of the Health Protection Agency, www.hpa.org.uk/radiation .
