Consultation on BT Phonebox Removal

South Gloucestershire Council have consulted on BT’s proposed removal of 93 payphones in South Gloucestershire.

This consultation process gave local communities the opportunity to adopt a traditional red ‘heritage’ phone box, and make them an asset that local people can enjoy.

The Parish Council have now completed the adoption of the phone box on North Road opposite the Village Green costing £1.00.  At the same time it has been agreed that the non traditional phone box on Braydon Avenue will be removed.

Arrangements will be made for the phone box to be repainted early in the Summer of 2017.

Stoke Gifford Ward Councillors Press Release MetroBus Extension Route

Please see attached press release produced by Stoke Gifford Ward Councillors relating to the proposed MetroBus Extension Route.

Parish Council MetroBus Response

Stoke Gifford Parish Council has registered a strong objection to the proposed MetroBus Extension Route insofar as it refers to the routing along Hatchet Road in Stoke Gifford.

The objection is based on the fact that the proposed route cannot, due to existing development, provide the required unfettered progress, yet at the same time will result in the unnecssary loss of an existing hedgerow and amenity space.

The Council is generally supportive of the MetroBus concept but considers that the Hatchet Road element of the proposed extension route as pre-mature, and given the fact that there is an existing alternative route this element should be delayed until the full effect of the "Stokes Link" on local traffic conditions is known, together with the load factors associated with MetroBus itself.

The Parish Council recommends that the route to be followed from the Gipsy Patch railway bridge (eastbound) should be along Gipsy Patch Road to the Winterbourne Road, continuing along the Winterbourne Road to the roundabout known locally as the "Rabbit Roundabout".  Then turning right at that roundabout, and along Bradley Stoke Way to the rear of the Parkway Railway Station and ultimately via the Stokes Link to Bristol.
