Mast plans to go ahead

controversial plans to erect two mobile phone masts in Belper have been given the go-ahead.

A heated planning meeting in Ripley on Monday saw the plans for the 13.8-metre high masts on the corner of Marsh Lane and Laund Nook, and on Park Road, approved.

Cllr Alan Cox said: “The phone companies have treated the people of Belper with disdain. It is disgusting.”
