Subject: Phone Box Adoption
I am contacting yourselves from Western Power Distribution.
We need to carry out essential maintenance on the supply next to the post office.
I have been made aware that the Parish Council have adopted the phone box.
I am trying to find out if you are adopting the phone box with a power supply or not as I believe BT offer this option.
If you could confirm if it is with or without power that would be much appreciated and help in the planning of our works.
We have received a request from the new owners of the Old Post Office on the High Street, Longnor, to remove the existing wall mounted light from the frontage of the building. They are currently renovating the property and no longer wish to have the light there. The light is currently connected to the owners DNO cut out within the property and Western Power Distribution have agreed to disconnect it as soon as an alternative location is agreed for a replacement light to be installed.
The electricity service cables are on the opposite side of the road and we would be looking to install a column directly opposite the existing light, or as near as the road layout allows. There are parking bays opposite with small areas of land between the bays that we could utilise for the new light. The new column would be a 5m steel column, painted Black with our standard LED lantern installed, also in Black. Would the parish council have any desire to upgrade this installation to something more in keeping with the area, then I would be happy to provide a quotation for you.
I’ve attached a plan and a photo of the area for your information. I would be happy to meet on site to discuss any issues or concerns you may have,
