- Questions about this consultation
BT has proposed to remove the telephone box at the junction of Westfield Road and Knollbeck Avenue, Brampton.
The unit was recently damaged beyond economical repair. The payphone has also had low or no use in the past 12 months.
BT propose to remove the telephone equipment and there will no longer be a telephone service at the site. The nearest telephone box is at the junction of Knollbeck Lane and Knollbeck Avenue. This is around 600 metres away.
The proposal to close the payphone is BT’s and not the Council’s. The Council is organising and coordinating consultation responses for the wider community.
An initial one-month consultation received no objections to the proposal. The Council thus supports the proposed removal of the phone box and has made a draft decision to this effect.
A further one-month consultation on this decision received no objections. The Council has now made a final decision to support the removal of the phone box.
