Local groups form to oppose the erection of base stations in their particular localities.

The main problems facing them are a lack of information, familiarity with the planning process and a coherent strategy.

The aforementioned section on planning identifies some of the main features of the planning process whereby applications may be challenged. Further, detailed information on this aspect is available in Planning Policy Statement 10.

Much information is also available on the internet and the sites listed identified in the reference section are worth a visit.

Hardcopies of some of the reference are also available at the Council Offices. Planning Policy Statement 10, Electromagnetic Fields and Human Health (J. Moulder) and Mobile Phones and Masts, the Health Risks (A & J Philips).

Members of some of the campaigning groups formed in this area are willing to share their experiences and may be contacted through this office
