Give your views on proposals to remove telephone boxes

Daventry News -

People are invited to have their say on plans by BT to remove telephone boxes in Daventry District.

BT has contacted Daventry District Council (DDC) with proposals to remove 19 phone boxes from around Daventry District, two of which are the traditional red ‘K6’ telephone boxes.

DDC has published a draft response to BT’s proposals and is encouraging residents, parish councils and other interested groups to give their views on it.

The Council plans to object to the proposals to remove the red telephone boxes at Long Buckby Wharf and on Main Street in Cottesbrooke, on the grounds that they are important to the District’s heritage.

The draft response agrees to BT’s proposals to remove six modern phone boxes due to low call volumes, but objects to a further 11 proposals to remove boxes, either because call levels suggest there may be a need for them, or they are in areas where mobile phone signals are poor.

People have until 5pm on Monday 28 Octoberto give their feedback on the draft response. Councillors will then consider a final response to BT at the Strategy Group meeting on 14 November.

The draft response and details of how to respond can be found on DDC’s website

Copies of the document can also be viewed at Daventry District Council’s Lodge Road offices, and in libraries in Daventry, Long Buckby, Brixworth, Moulton and Woodford Halse.
