The Parish Council is responsible for the maintenance and operation of the 40 streetlights in the village. Currently all of our streetlights are illuminated between dusk and dawn and present a considerable burden on our energy bill. We are considering changing some of our streetlights from being illuminated all night [i.e. from dusk to dawn] to being illuminated from dusk to midnight and turning back on again at 5am [i.e. they are off from midnight for five hours and come on again at 5am until dawn].
If we do decide to alter some of the streetlights, this is done by changing the bulb. There is a cost involved in changing each bulb, but also a benefit is energy cost savings as well as the benefit for the environment.
We have identified 8 out of the 40 streetlights that could potentially be adapted to be off between midnight and 5:00am, and would like your opinion on these specific lights.
These 8 lights are identified by their column numbers:- 15, 16 or 17, 19, 23, 25, 35, 37, 39.
Please refer to the detailed streetlight map as part of this consultation so the column numbering is more meaningful to you by street location.
So please have a look and let us know your thoughts about our proposal to reduce the illumination time for these 8 lights to dusk to midnight and back on at 5am until dawn.
