We (PRABOA) have received two applications for the erection of new cell masts in Parkhurst
1. From Cell C – between 21st and 22nd Street on the Braamfontein Spruit
2. From ATC South Africa – on the grounds of the Parkhurst Primary School – with allowance already made for an additional 6 plinths, next to the School’s tennis courts.
We as a community need to urgently decide whether we want additional cell masts. If you object because of the position, but would be happy with another position ,please add your comment about a suitable position.
Everywhere else in the world cell masts are being taken down and cell phones banned in schools because of the health risks they pose to people, and children in particular. Please refer to www.emrrfsa.org for reasons why this is being done and why additional masts are not a good idea. We are being flooded with obsolete technology in Africa that would not be accepted anywhere else in the world.
