We've had people complaining from headaches caused by a cell tower.. which was never switched on.
So I would not take people protests as a consistent sign that regulations must be changed. These protests sometimes just mean that something HAS changed.
According to Wikipedia, even the Eiffel Tower was highly objected to when it was first proposed. Here is the petition, which is quite fun to read, in retrospect:
"We, writers, painters, sculptors, architects and passionate devotees of the hitherto untouched beauty of Paris, protest with all our strength, with all our indignation in the name of slighted French taste, against the erection ... of this useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower ... To bring our arguments home, imagine for a moment a giddy, ridiculous tower dominating Paris like a gigantic black smokestack, crushing under its barbaric bulk Notre Dame, the Tour Saint-Jacques, the Louvre, the Dome of les Invalides, the Arc de Triomphe, all of our humiliated monuments will disappear in this ghastly dream. And for twenty years ... we shall see stretching like a blot of ink the hateful shadow of the hateful column of bolted sheet metal."
