Masts concern

An application has been made recently for permission to place a 15 metre high mast at the corner of Upper Shoreham Road and Parkside, Shoreham, to be considered by council officers shortly.

In view of a similar application having been made in 2005/6 on the corner of Upper Shoreham Road and Downsway, which was refused on appeal, I am wondering just how safe these masts are?

Is it possible to ascertain just how safe they really are, as far as radio waves are concerned, especially as it will be in an area where children attend a nearby primary school and two nursery schools?
