Payphone consultation – response required

Some of you may have seen the notices in the payphones at the Spoute and on Church Hill advising that BT are considering disconnection because of low usage (no calls in the last 12 months from the Spoute; 5 calls in the last 12 months from Church Hill).  Legally, BT have to consult with TMBC if they wish to remove the payphones and they are currently doing so. Before they respond, TMBC have approached the Parish Council for a view on this proposal.

Our response so far has been that with mobile and network coverage so patchy in Plaxtol village, both payphones should be retained if only for emergency calls. However, it would be helpful if, in addition, you could let us know your feelings on the issue.

The consultation runs till January, but TMBC are planning to make a response soon, so any comments will be gratefully received, either through Facebook, or by e-mail direct to Linda through
