- Final decision supporting the removal of Stubbin Road telephone box
BT are proposing to close the telephone kiosk at the Junction of Stubbin Road and Cortworth Lane S62 7RZ (01709522863) It attracts vandalism and there have been no calls from the phone in the past 12 months.
The proposal to close the phone box is BT's and not the Council's.
The Council is organising and coordinating consultation responses for the wider community.
Despite the phone box meeting local criteria developed for assessing phone boxes worthy of retention there has been no community support received in the initial consultation in favour of the phone boxes retention. It has been identified locally as a magnet for vandalism. Thus the Council has made a draft decision to support the proposal from BT to remove the phone box.
This consultation will close at 5pm on 2 March 2018. Then the Council will consider all objections received and decide whether to consent or object to BT's proposal. We will then publish a notification of the final decision.
