Final Notice – Removal of Public Payphone: Junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, S10 3GH

15 Aug

Final Notice – Removal of Public Payphone:  Junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, S10 3GH

 The Council and BT have previously consulted on the proposal to remove this payphone service. The initial consultation on BTs proposals to remove the telephone service at the junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, Nether Green took place from 21 May to 1 July 2019.  A further consultation was then undertaken from 8 July to 7 August 2019 on a ‘First Notification’ draft decision to object to the proposal. 

We have now issued a ‘Final Notification’ which is Sheffield City Council’s final decision to not object to the proposed removal of the service on Tom Lane and Fulwood Road. This would allow removal of the payphone equipment and enable Ant Kids Charity to pursue taking ownership of this telephone kiosk under BT’s adopt a kiosk programme.  

A copy of the final notification can be seen here. The response to the consultations can be viewed at https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/place-planning/further-consultation-on-removal-of-bt/
