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. Cowley Road at this point passes through a vibrant, busy community, but is also a major artery of the city’s transport infrastructure. The footways are seriously congested already with pedestrians moving along and across the street. The addition of yet more street clutter, especially of the size and shape of a call box is wholly inappropriate visually and would constitute a significant obstruction.
