It depends if you would still have enough head height over the stairs check your local council regs to see what this would be it's usually 2m100mm . The actual box could probably be lowered you would need to take the top off to give you a general idea of how much you could take it down by.

it sounds like a cuboard under the stairwell it is very unlikely iit will be supporting anything. if it has been closed off it is possible a boiler may have beennhere and the area contains asbestos. this is our specialst trade and have found this a usual location for asbestos materials. if you could provide photos or rather i visited to inspect there would be novcharge at all as i supply a free help and advice service on all asbestos related issues. there is no catch but just an understanable and guideance service
