A CONSULTATION is under way into the proposed removal of 14 public payphones in Moray.
Moray Council has been invited to respond to BT with comments, so is asking local residents their thoughts on the removal of phone boxes at: Grant Drive, Forres; Califer Road/Pilmuir Road, Forres; Victoria Street, Craigellachie; Covesea Road, Elgin; Linkwood Road, Elgin; Bruceland Road, Elgin; Fraser Avenue, Elgin; Fairisle Place, Lossiemouth; The Square, Fochabers; Auchenhalrig, Spey Bay; North Murrayfield, Fochabers; Farquahar St/Harbour St, Hopeman; outside Post Office, Cabrach; The Square, Tomintoul.
Comments can be made via the online survey (www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MorayBT2019), by emailing EHAdmin@moray.gov.uk or calling 01343 563578. Alternatively, residents can write to EH Admin, Moray Council, High Street, Elgin, IV30 1BX. All respondents should make clear the phone box(es) they are referring to within their comments, and all comments should be received by 30 August 2019.
Organisations can ‘adopt’ an older-style red payphone box for £1 – if adopted BT will remove the phone from within the box.
Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
