Part-Time Street Lighting

Please visit the LCC site for full details. As a money saving measure, LCC have proposed to switch off certain street lights between midnight and 5am. A map of proposed lights can be found here. A consultation period is open until 30th August 2013, where we are gathering views of residents, particularly where a sensitive area might require lighting staying switched on (sheltered accommodation, junctions etc). ———————————————————————————————————————————————
