Dear Mums,

The mobile operator Orange has applied to Camden council to erect a Mast / Telecom pole in the middle of Fitzjohn's Avenue in Hampstead, London NW3.

This proposal may have a significant effect on people's health and especially children and thus we urge you to act.

This is of direct concern with respect to the young children based on reasons such as:
1. The thickness of a young child?s skull is less than that of an adult and so that person is more exposed to the effects of radio frequency.
2. Schools are rather an exceptional case. Each day the kids will play in the playground and are exposed to the radio frequencies emitted, so there is certainty of exposure.
3. A young person may only suffer the effects of what is presently unproven and unknown in 10 -20 years? time.

With this in mind we urge you to object by writing an email, quoting the Ref number: 2009/2524/P in the subject box to: ,
and c.c. (Camden Councillor & Executive Member for the Environment at Camden ) to object.

and/or Complete the online comment form at the link below:

Given the proposed application is in the middle of a conservation area please note other relevant objections:

1. Harm to the character and appearance of the conservation area, contrary to UDP policy B7 - Conservation Areas

o Compromise visual aspect/ street cluttering & increased furniture

2. Failure to respect the setting of the area, contrary to UDP policy B1 - General design principles (e.g. does not create any unacceptable environmental, amenity, safety, highway, or other problems)

Response deadline: 17 July 2009

Relevant articles:

Please take the time to write the objection.

With your voice we stand a chance to win and prevent a mobile phone mast being erected in the midst of the highest concentration of schools in London.

Do not forget to let your friends, neighbours and network know about that matter.

vava - do you use a mobile yourself?

I fail to see how anyone who actually uses a mobile can get thier hair off about masts.

"we": the residents and parents of the
children who are in the 15 schools around

No one needs a mast near homes and schools, especially if the coverage is excellent! There are plenty of other possible locations for masts....

We live in the middle of the city, everyone has a mobile phone, many a blackberry, wireless internet, wireless printers....And myself I use all of that but it is very different than subjecting children to radiations 24/7!

If you are interested, plenty of research and surveys online!

is this a personal post or are you posting on behalf of some organisation?

could you link to any evidence that these masts are harmful or any credible suggestions about how they might be.
