BT Payphone Removal 2020
BT are proposing to remove 7 payphones (also referred to in this consultation as phone boxes) in South Gloucestershire. The removal concerns those phone boxes identified as unnecessary, whilst retaining public payphones that are either still in use or have been categorised as providing a social need.
Please note that as of Friday 14th February 2020, the phonebox outside MAYPOLE (Public house) PCO1 HIGH STREET HANHAM BRISTOL has been cancelled from this list by BT and is no longer proposed to be removed. The list of phone boxes being considered for removal can be found in the consultation document.
This consultation process also gives local communities the opportunity to adopt a traditional red ‘heritage’ phone box and make them an asset that local people can enjoy. This costs £1 and can be done on the following webpage:

Our draft decision subject to one month's public consultation
|Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
