Crowland ‘rubbish’ mobile phone signal highlighted during mast debate

A town’s ‘rubbish’ mobile phone reception was raised during discussions on plans to introduce a new phone mast.

Circet UK Ltd have been given the go-ahead to put up a new 25metre telecommunications mast and associated work on land at Pinnacle Close Industrial Units in Crowland by South Holland District Council’s planning committee.

Crowland councillor Bryan Alcock raised concerns over the impact of the ‘ugly’ mast on nearby homes but admitted that the authority would have a ‘hell of a job to refuse the damn thing’.

He said “I know we need these things and goodness knows the reception in Crowland is rubbish so anything of an improvement would be welcome.”

“In reality, this mast is not that far away from the houses.

“I am certainly not going to move it.”

But the application received support from Coun Thomas Sneath, who said that masts are put in places which would cover most of the population.

He said: “I can see no reason why we shouldn’t agree with the recommendation.”
