Phone box will be removed after residents’ views heard

The phone box outside The Joker pub

The council has confirmed that the telephone box outside The Joker pub on Sycamore Avenue will be removed following complaints from residents that it was associated with anti-social behaviour.

We reported previously that BT had proposed to close a number of phone boxes across the borough, and that we were seeking the views of people who live in the immediate vacinity about this one after residents had told us of their concerns.

The majority of people who responded told us that they wanted it to go and on that basis we were able to make representations to the consultation. Without your views being heard, it is highly likely that the box would have remained in use. BT will instead remove it in due course.

Our thanks to everyone who responded and we hope that this helps to reduce the worries that you told us about.
