Compton Dundon Residents Against the Mast has been formed to stop Telefonica and Vodafone

The owner of a retreat centre for people with electro-sensitivity is among the objectors to a new phone mast in a beautiful Somerset village.

David Taylor runs the EarthSpirit Centre in Compton Dundon, which provides solace and holistic therapy for people from across the south west, including people who attribute their ill health to modern technology.

He believes that his livelihood and that of the village is under threat from O2 owner Telefonica, which has submitted plans to build an 18-metre mast only a few minutes' walk from his business.

Mr Taylor is one of the founders of Compton Dundon Residents Against the Mast (CDRAM), a residents' group whose opposition has attracted the support of local MP David Warburton.

Mr Taylor said that the mast proposal was "anti-business" because it would destroy the natural environment which attracts people to Somerset.

He said: "We provide retreats here, offering holistic therapies and providing a refuge for people who are electrosensitive.

"This area has outstanding natural beauty - people come here to escape this kind of thing. It's an anti-business development, because it will stop people coming here to enjoy the scenery and the nearby nature reserves."

Where is the mast set to be built?

If erected, the past will be only a short distance from the village hall, the post office, the cricket club pitches and the Explorium creative learning centre.
