RESIDENTS in Romiley are gearing-up for the mother of all battles, to prevent two high profile telecommunications masts being built in their midst in the village centre.
The one causing most controversy is the planned siting by Orange of a near 40 ft mast next to Romiley Forum, Compstall Road, and less than 100 metres from Romiley Primary School.
The second one is a 56 ft mast by 02 on land owned by Network Rail at Romiley Railway Station. Both decisions, which are being recommended by Stockport Council officials for approval, will be made on Tuesday by Werneth Area Committee.
The meeting starts at 6 pm at the Ada Kay Centre, off Annable Road, Lower Bredbury.
