Liberal Democrats in Dunston, Gateshead, have welcomed the rejection of plans to put a phone mast on Holmside Avenue in the village.
The plan was rejected at the Council’s Planning Committee meeting on Wednesday 14th February.
Liberal Democrats handed in a petition signed by 150 residents against the plan and Dunston Councillor Peter Maughan represented the objectors at the planning meeting.
Local Liberal Democrat campaigner Michael Ruddy said, “I am pleased the campaign to defeat this plan was a success. The site was next to hundreds of houses. There are right places to put masts and there are wrong places. This was certainly a wrong place.”
