Residents oppose planning application for mast
Residents living close to a new apartment complex on Basin Lane in the south west inner city area of Dublin came together tonight(22 Oct 2008) to attend a public meeting organised by People Before Profit to discuss the health implications to the public posed by the installation of mobile phone masts in areas of dense population.
The meeting heard reports from residents of Canal Bank who had recently been succesful in an objection to Dublin City Council which they lodged against a planning application for the instalation of a mobile phone mast and a neon advertisment sign.Dublin City Council had cited a concern for the public health as grounds for accepting objections and refusing permission to the applicant.Objecting residents gave an account of being obstructed from seeing the actual site notice for several weeks in advance of their registering their objection.They also expressed anger that the applicant had lodged an appeal to overturn the Local Authority decision to An Bord Pleanala.
