Godella to get more mo­bile masts

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

Mo­bile phone masts are about to be set up in Godella (L'Horta Nord) as a num­ber of res­i­dents still can­not get a sig­nal from their homes.

May­oress and coun­cil­lor for plan­ning, Eva San­chis, says lo­cal au­thor­i­ties are 'ne­go­ti­at­ing' an­tenna lo­ca­tions with phone com­pa­nies.

“We want to make sure we can of­fer cover to ev­ery­one, but with­out putting up masts in places which could in­con­ve­nience res­i­dents,” Sra San­chis ex­plains.

Mass com­plaints have been re­ported in the past in nu­mer­ous towns across Spain be­cause of aeri­als be­ing too close to homes or schools, as res­i­dents feared they could harm their health.

A re­cent court ver­dict means Godella's lo­cal byelaws reg­u­lat­ing tele­phone masts has had to be scrapped, since only the State gov­ern­ment has the jurisdiction to de­cide where they can be set up in the event of dis­pute.
