‘No Mast in our Past’ is the slogan of an action group campaigning against proposals to build a 15 metre telecommunications on Framfield Recreation Ground. Shared Access wants to build a 15 metre monopole mast with antennae for use by Vodaphone and Telefonica with one dish and two ground based equipment cabinets, the whole providing 2G, 3G and 4G mobile services. More than 60 people attended a meeting on Friday night and were urged to write to Wealden District Council outlining their opposition. They say the ground was gifted to the village in memory of the 32 local soldiers who died in World War I. The base station would be next to specially planted trees and a memorial plaque. Paul Leader described how villagers were invited to choose a way to remember those who fell in the Great War.They opted to create a recreation ground as a quiet space. Now they are upset that the Parish Council supports the scheme. A Parish Council statement reports that Shared Access wants to site the mast at the rear of the ground. It says:“This will enhance mobile telephone coverage in nearby villages and not affect the activities of the recreation ground or the hall.” The company will pay £40,000 to the council once the lease is finalised.
