A WELLINGTON resident has voiced his concerns over a proposal for a 50-foot mobile phone mast set to go up on the Blackdown Trading Estate.

The application, submitted by Hutchinson 3G UK, has received the backing of Wellington Town Council, but Scott Palmer of Scotts Lane, where the mast will be placed, is far from happy about the decision.

Mr Palmer told the Gazette: "There are already two telephone masts there and it is not very fair because when the other two were put up they were so close to other houses.

"The planners are treating this as if it's not a residential area.

"I don't know when they are going to stop."

The plans include placing a 'base station' with mast and antennae at the back of Scotts Lane in the grounds of the King's Church centre.

Mr Palmer said that he could clearly see the other two masts already from one of his windows.

In a Wellington Town Council planning meeting the majority of councillors thought it was appropriate to have the new mast on a trading estate, but voted for it to be moved from the corner to a better position on the estate.

The application will now go before Taunton Deane Council.
