BT is planning to remove a number of public phone boxes from South Somerset. The payphone in the High Street adjacent to the Jasmine and Bay Cafe is amongst those on the list.
In order to effect the removal of the payphone BT are required to consult with SSDC before taking any action. SSDC can object to the proposed removal but they must provide sound evidence to support their objection. It will be extremely difficult to resist removal of the payphone where there has been little or no use in the last twelve months. The latest usage figures for our payphone is an average of two calls per month.
If you wish to contribute to the consultation then please contact SSDC at the following link by 30th September 2020 :
