TELECOM giant Orange has agreed to pull down a controversial mobile phone mast.
The company promised to find a new site after massive opposition from residents when the mast was built at Armitage Avenue, Brighouse, off Huddersfield Road.
Orange said it had now decided that a mast on farmland well away from housing would be able to provide "acceptable coverage" to replace the Armitage Avenue mast.
The company said it would dismantle the Armitage Avenue mast as soon as a permanent electricity supply had been installed at the replacement mast.
Residents began their protests more than two years ago, saying the mast was too near their homes.
The mast is also just 250 yards from Woodhouse Junior School in Daisy Road.
Last summer, Orange said its survey of a potential alternative site on farmland had been delayed by the foot and mouth restrictions.
Calder Valley MP Chris McCafferty, who backed the protesters, said: "I am delighted we are last seeing the end of this battle.
"I am grateful to Orange for their willingness to think again, after originally going ahead with the unpopular mast.
"But I will keep pressing them for regular updates."
