Application for prior approval to install a call box.
We object to the siting of this call box. No evidence is provided that there is any significant need for such a facility at this location. Frideswide Square was dramatically re-configured in recent years, and a significant element of its improvement was the reduction in street clutter and the creation of an attractive open space; it would be counter-productive to reverse this improvement by the installation of new and unnecessary objects of clutter. The proposed location takes no account of the position and appearance of planters, seating, or recently-installed vegetation, designed to create an attractive environment, and the installation of a call box here would detrimentally affect this intent.
