BT is consulting the local communities and Kettering Borough Council asking for comments on their proposals.  As part of this consultation process BT asks that if the local communities have any comments, that they forward them on to the Local Authority Planning Department.

If you have comments in support, or objecting to the removal of a payphone, or if you wish to adopt a traditional red “heritage” box to make them an asset that local people can enjoy, then please let us know and we’ll forward your comments on to BT.  It is a relatively simple process to adopt a telephone box, and costs just £1. Details of how to adopt a payphone can be found here.

If you would like to make a comment please e-mail planning@kettering.gov.uk or write to Development Services, Kettering Borough Council, Municipal Offices, Bowling Green Road, Kettering NN15 7QX.  Please title your letters or emails ‘BT payphone removal consultation’ and ensure your comments are made by 5th January 2017.

BT says that overall use of payphones has declined by over 90% in the last decade and the need to provide payphones for use in emergency situations is diminishing all the time, with at least 98% of the UK having either 3G or 4G coverage.  This is important because as long as there is network coverage, it is now possible to call the emergency services, even when there is no credit or no coverage from your own mobile provider.
