    Widespread consultations begin today into one of the most wide-ranging changes ever proposed by BT and Open Reach with the transition from 01704 numbers to 0151 numbers in line with the rest of Merseyside.

    Residents will receive initial survey letters from BT’s head of operations Alex G. Bell in a mass maildrop today; the controversial moves are part of plan to integrate telephony across the region into a single code with Southport and Formby’s 01704 soon to be obsolete.

    A BT spokesman said: “This change is long overdue and although it won’t happen overnight, our customers shouldn’t experience any real problems.

    “New phone books have been ordered for those who need them throughout Sefton and west Lancashire. They’ll cost £10 each and we have reached a deal with Argos, Home Bargains and Tesco to sell them.”
