A MOBILE phone mast is set to be installed in a Burnley street, despite objections from residents.

The plans for the pavement between 277 and 315 Brunshaw Road were delegated to town planners by councillors at the latest meeting of the development control committee.

The 15m-high mast will provide coverage for Telefonica O2 and Vodaphone networks in the area.

Residents had collected 98 signatures on a petition claiming the structure would be an “eyesore”. They also raised concerns about potential health risks associated with the mast.
