Phone Mast Go Ahead

A CONTROVERSIAL plan to build a 20-metre-high phone mast in the centre of Stranraer was given the go ahead last week despite objections.

The mast is set to appear on the town's skyline behind the telephone exchange at Clenoch Street after councillors approved applicant Crown Castle International's plan.

Councillors heard that a previous proposal to site the mast nearby in the grounds of the exchange would have placed it directly behind the Stranraer Town Kirk, formerly St. Andrew's Church.

Following a site visit, however, the applicant was told that the siting of the mast would have to be revised, as it would "adversely affect the setting of the category B-listed building".

The new site, approved by councillors at last week's Wigtown Regulatory meeting in Stranraer, now sits directly behind three properties on Ivy Place. These include the Ivy House and the Jan Da Mar guest houses.
