Mutiny over the masts

Surely objector Peter Craig (proposed cell phone mast at Holy Trinity church - The Comet front page, March 9)) accepts that despite repeated studies, there is no evidence, from any country in the world, that radiation from cell phone masts is in any way harmful. As for the £5000 per annum rental, can he suggest a more deserving recipient than this church? And if indeed an extra mast is needed to serve the Old Town, where does he suggest it be erected?
Many Old Town residents will welcome the improved reception, and this useful income for the good work of Holy Trinity

* I just cannot believe that Stevenage Borough Council are riding rough-shod over the public again with phone masts.
I previously wrote in about the Symonds Green mast, which despite public outcry, has been erected in the dead of night, while we were all asleep. Where is Barbara Follett in all this? Can't she show the council the error of their ways.
I think that the council must have had a casual salesman drop in one day and talk councillors into buying a batch of masts at a reduced rate, because he could not flog them anywhere else. But now the councillors have nowhere to put them, because no-one wants them.

If they do this, then, what's good for the goose, is good for the gander, I mentioned before about having a reduction in rates.
I was one of the first children in Stevenage New Town and I still cross paths with some of the others; we are angry at the degeneration of something that was good and wonderful. Our parents brought us here because the countryside was healthy. For every tree that was felled, a new spruce shall be planted, they said. Now the countryside is getting further away and they are even planting steel trees that are going to damage our health.
The Old Town is now only a facade, and who allowed those two awful roads that sever it. And now to crown it all, we are to see the desecration of a wonderful old church, and it happens to be where my parents are buried.
They cannot fight a whole town, so be mutinous...let's back Peter Craig.
