Brief Description of Decision:

 

 

BT has proposed the removal of the public phone box adjacent to 268 Kimberworth Road S61 1HE.   A resident has requested the kiosk be removed due to it attracting antisocial behaviour.  Following assessment, and having regard to the consultation carried out, a draft decision to agree with the removal of this phone box is proposed

 

Reasons for the Decision:

 

 

No objections were received during the first consultation period on the removal of this phone box. One of the criteria the Council uses in considering requests for phone box removal was triggered. There have been four road traffic incidents recorded including one fatality near the payphone.  However, there are a large number of properties nearby where assistance might possibly be requested in order to contact the emergency services. The phone box removal was requested by a resident due to it attracting antisocial behavaiour.  Overall, it is therefore recommended that the Council agrees to the removal of this phone box.
