Telecommunications company BT has written to North Norfolk District Council to confirm the start of a 90-day consultation. Submit your comments by 31 August 2020.

BT has informed the Council it has placed consultation notices on the relevant payphones with the date they have been posted.

As part of the 90-day consultation North Norfolk District Council has been asked to consult with individual town and parish councils affected and feed those responses to BT.

The Council has no role in drawing up the list of payphone services involved in the consultation.

NNDC has written to all affected town and parish councils to make them aware of the consultation and is asking for comments on the proposed removal of individual payphones within the council areas.

The phone kiosks identified for removal fall within the parishes of Hickling, Horning, Hoveton, Ludham, Northrepps, Runton, Sheringham, Sidestrand, Smallburgh, Stalham, Sea Palling and Walcott.

BT is also asking communities to feedback on whether they wish to join the Adopt a Kiosk scheme that allows a community to acquire any of the traditional red heritage phone boxes.

North Norfolk District Council has requested town and parish councils send back comments by 31 August 2020 and these should be sent to following which the Council will review the consultation responses and prepare a draft decision which will be subject to further consultation.
