Blundellsands Labour Action Team and MP Bill Esterson meets resi

MP Bill Esterson with Blundellsands Labour Action Team’s Veronica Bennett at the spot where Vodafone plan to site a mast



Blundellsands Labour Action Team and MP Bill Esterson have been working with residents in Crosby who are opposing the installation of a mobile phone mast.

Vodafone has applied to install the mast on the corner of Warren Road and The Serpentine

Bill and Blundellsands Labour Action Team's Veronica Bennett has met with some of the anti-mast campaigners.

Residents have so far gathered nearly 100 names on a petition opposing the plans.

And after receiving a letter from Bill Esterson about the issue, scores more have also voiced their objections.

Bill said: "There is clearly a lot of concern about the plans to install the mast here at this site in Blundellsands.

"So we have therefore been in contact with all of the residents who live near to the proposed site to gauge their views.

"Together with the campaigning residents, I will be presenting all of my findings to the planning department to allow them to fully understand the views of local people within the community."

Blundellsands Labour Action Team's Veronica Bennett, who lives nearby and is also a caseworker for Bill Esterson, has contacted Vodafone directly about their plans.

Veronica said: "I contacted Vodafone about this issue because they do need to understand that there is a lot of concern from the local community about their plans.

"I have asked them to explain their reasoning for wanting to site a mast at this particular location - directly next to the the Key Park, while also informing us about which other locations in this area they considered. There may be an alternative site which could be preferable to the community.

"I'd like to thank the residents who have responded to our survey on this issue and assure them that the Blundellsands Labour Action Team will ensure that their views are heard."
