Queen’s Park Labour Councillors Paul Dimoldenberg, Patricia McAllister and Hamza Taouzzale are supporting residents’ objections to the proposal to locate 12 telecommunications antenna masts on the roof of Naylor House. Residents have objected on a number of grounds, including:
- Interference to our to existing amenities reception. The submission by CTIL, Telefonica and Vodafone says that Naylor House and the residents in close vicinity will be adversely affected.
- Bulkiness of Masts and equipment.
- Number of Antennas to be Installed
- Noise Level
- No information whether the permission is a one off or with possibility of future permission of upgrade the mats and equipment.
- No recent Research Report was submitted to show that there is no effect of radiation from the telecom masts installed in residential area. The report given did not measure the effect of the exposure to radiation level over long period of time.
- These Antennas will be running 24/7 five meters away from the top floor Naylor house residents. This will increase the risk of radiation to the residents of Naylor House and the residents in the surrounding area.
- According to CTIL, Telefonica and Vodafone, “we (the residents) are already exposed to radiation in our homes and by our urban location.” Then why add more radiation? We expect a duty of care from Westminster Council to protect us and not to expose the residents to further radiation of which it’s accumulation over time will be detrimental to our health and wellbeing.
