Consultation on the Removal of BT Payphones in the Sheffield Area

Closed 27 Oct 2016

Opened 5 Oct 2016

Overview

BT proposes to remove the payphones  (the phone box and the equipment) listed below, because the phone has had very little use over a significant period of time.

What Happens Next

 

The local planning authority will then consider the comments, alongside other prescribed factors and will publish in draft whether they will be consenting or objecting to the proposal on that basis. 

If at this stage the Council is consenting to the equipment being removed, local communities still have the opportunity to adopt a traditional red  ‘heritage’ phone box and make them an asset that local people can enjoy.  It’s simple to do directly with BT and costs just £1.
