We were alerted today that BT is removing the lovely old red telephone box from Old High Street. Residents contacted us to ask if we could try a last ditch attempt to save it.
We have contacted BT. They say that a notice was put up inside the phone box facing out on 28/10/12 saying it hadn’t taken any money, it wasn’t being used, and it would be taken out unless someone sent in an objection.
- objections can be sent in by local residents and the decision can be appealed
- if it’s the only phone box within 400m, it can be adopted for £1 by the community
- residents can ask the City Council to recommend that it’s listed
Ruth has been out and put up a notice on the kiosk requesting BT engineers not to remove the phone box till further notice
