Antenna finally removed in Benajarafe

After six years of complaints from local residents, and unable to obtain judicial authorisation, the Council and Vodafone finally reached an agreement to remove the unlicensed mobile phone antenna located in the Cortijada Los Pérez area of Benajarafe.

The tower had been in place for fifteen years and the subject of protests by local residents for many years. Residents maintain there is a connection between an incidence of 50 cases of cancer in a population of only 400 people.

The municipal authorities were unable to obtain judicial authorisation for the removal of the tower and therefore had to reach a negotiated agreement with Vodafone, which took several years. However, this was eventually successful and the tower ceased operating on Monday and the radio installation was removed on Tuesday.
