They want to put up three antennas and an equipment cabinet on the roof of The Providence at 130 Western Road, Hove. The building is also known as Sussex House and is next door to a listed building.
Paul Elgood, Liberal Democrat councillor for Brunswick and Adelaide, said on his blog: “We are asking residents to join us in objecting to the application.
“We believe that it is significant in size, close to homes and above a building which has been used as a nursery.
“Mobile phone masts are a necessary evil, but we also believe people have the right to live free from health fears over them.
“This is too close to local homes and a less intrusive site should be found.
“This proposal significantly upgrades the existing equipment there and because of its size is especially cause for concern.”
Cllr Elgood said that anyone wishing to comment on the planning application should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to the Planning Department, Brighton and Hove City Council, Hove Town Hall, Norton Road, Hove, BN3 3BQ.
