Red Post Boxes at Risk

It has come to light that  our our red post boxes are at risk as they are not protected in the Royal Mail sale.  link 

I find this very disapointing and have sent an e-mail to the Planning Department to ask if we can list some of them. They are part of our street scene and are  quintessentially British. Whether they are built into a wall or free standing, they have, in the main, been there for years and are part of the funiture. Do we need yet more advertising on our streets or a variety of coloured post boxes ? Our red phone boxes disappeared, we simply should not allow our post boxes to follow suit.
