CAMPAIGNERS are calling on Kirklees Council planners to refuse an application to install a mobile phone mast in Scholes.
Residents have objected to the proposal to build an 18ft mast on the Lee Mills site because of its close proximity to homes, a nursery and a public fishing dam.
Maggie Throup, the Tory parliamentary candidate for the Colne Valley, has also thrown her weight behind the campaign.
She said: "People don't realise that mobile phone masts don't have to go through the full planning process.
"At the moment it is all in favour of the developer and the views of local people are sidelined."
She called for a change in policy making it necessary for local councils to consult communities.
Today was the deadline for public objection.
Ms Throup added: "The location is in a hollow and houses look down onto it. It is a really odd place to put it."
