Consultation on BT public payphone removals

BT are consulting on their proposals to remove a number of the public payphone callboxes from within the Borough.  As the local public organisation we are consulting with parish councils, residents associations and community groups giving them 3 options:

  • to agree to the removal
  • to adopt the callbox for use by the local community
  • to object to the removal

Please see below list of the callboxes which BT are proposing to remove.  The individual callboxes can all be identified by a Public Notice posted within them by BT, informing residents of their proposal and directing any comments to Swindon Borough Council Planning Department. 

To respond to this consultation either in relation to your local callbox or to the overall proposal, please either email or write to
