Locals from Wilsons Creek are objecting to the installation of a Telstra tower in their area. Photo supplied.

A newly formed community group against a proposed Telstra mobile-communications tower in Wilsons Creek are holding their next meeting at Wilsons Creek Hall tonight (Wednesday August 29) from 6pm. 

Organisers of the Environment & Community Safe from Radiation group say they will be discussing where the development application (DA) process is up to and actions taken from the August 23 meeting.

‘Stopping the tower in Wilsons Creek is still our number one priority,’ they say, ‘but we also recognise that until the Australian Standards are changed to reflect current science and medical understanding of the effects of radiation on people and wildlife, no community in Australia will be safe.’
