Second phase of Consultation on BT’s 2020 proposal to remove 107 public payphones from across Highland

With just two weeks to go before the consultation closes, Highland Council is seeking final feedback from the public on BT’s proposal to remove 107 public payphones from across the Highland region.

This second phase of consultation will close on 10/10/2020. Details, including how to respond can be found at the consultation area of the Highland Council website:

Regulation set out by Ofcom, the independent communications regulator, states that The Highland Council has the responsibility to co-ordinate a response to BT.

Following 116 responses to the first phase of the consultation, an initial summary of this feedback has been published online at the Council website for further comment:

The Council is encouraging members of the public to look at BT’s proposals and comment, giving as much information as possible about the public call boxes which have been proposed for removal.

Following the end of the consultation, a final notice of decision will be published online, which will outline Highland Council’s position on the proposed removals.
