Forming a group to oppose cell tower in putney

I just read the post Daniel posted that someone wants to put a cell tower in he center of Putney. I agree 100% with him that this would be AWFUL- mostly because of the radiation etcetera that it emits. I am trying to find out more information about how to oppose this?

Who actually makes this decision and who gets to vote on it? Might we put together a group of concerned Putney town members to speak to the people who are making this dangerous decision?

I would be willing to meet up with a group to discuss approaches to this, to help stop this before it is too late.
