Update 12/06/2017

We have objected to an application for a new telephone box on the pavement outside Lloyd’s Pharmacy in Kew Village. A similar application outside Tescos on the other side of Station Parade (ref 17/1349/TEL) has just been refused by Richmond Council. The new telephone box on the main pedestrian route from Kew Gardens station to the Royal Botanic Gardens would add unnecessary clutter and do nothing to enhance the character and appearance of this conservation area. Nor is it clear to us that there is demand for telephone boxes in the age of the ubiquitous mobile phone,
