BT Telephone Box Consultation

Published Monday, 25 November 2019

Have your say on BT proposals to remove 38 payphone boxes across Waverley.

Waverley Borough Council is carrying out a community consultation, to find out what local people think about British Telecom’s plans to remove phone boxes across the borough. 

The details of the phone boxes which BT would like to remove, along with the number of calls made from each phone box in the last 12 months can be found here.

BT is aware that many people find the red phone boxes an important part of the local street scene but would like to remove the payphones on the grounds that they are used infrequently and are expensive to maintain. However, the consultation will give communities an opportunity to adopt a traditional red phone box for £1.00 and make them a community asset that local people can enjoy. To find out more about BT's adopt a Kiosk scheme visit .

If you would like to make a comment, please email by Friday, 20 December 2019 stating whether you:

a) agree to removal

b) would like to consider adopting a kiosk

c) object to removal.
