PLANS to build a temporary new 15 metre high mobile phone mast in Saffron Walden have been given the go ahead.

O2 Airwave had applied to renew planning permission originally given in 2003 to site the mast on Shire Hill Industrial Estate.

It will have three dishes, an equipment cabin and compound.

The pole will be there for 12 months while mobile phone operator T-Mobile negotiates for a permanent mast site, for which new planning consent will be needed.

It will be shared by the T-Mobile, Orange and Airwave, which is setting up a digital radio network for the emergency services.
