Do We Still Need Our Phone Booths? Consultation Now On

BT is proposing to remove 80 payphones in Central Bedfordshire.

The removal concerns payphones identified by BT as unnecessary, whilst retaining public payphones that are still in use or have been categorised as providing a social need.

An initial Object or Agree comment has been added by Central Bedfordshire Council following a local parish council consultation, and now they want public feedback on the booths to be removed or kept. You can download the full list here, but for local convenience we've listed some here.

The following are under threat of removal:

Junction of Tithe Farm Rd, Leaf Road
Junction of Windsor Drive, Lowry Drive

Opposite number 2 Neptune Square
