Cllr Peter McDonald has made the following comments with regards to ongoing issues with BT in Barnt Green:

“It really does beggar belief that BT in Sandhills, Barnt Green, would install a pole in such a way it clearly causes an obstruction and a danger to those pushing prams and residents in general.

The regulations are quite clear; poles must be as far away from the kerb as possible, unlike in this case where you could not get any closer. Obviously BT is guilty of employing cowboys instead of well trained personnel: putting local residents at risk.

I have asked County Council officers to get hold of BT immediately and have it removed before there is a serious accident.”
