Street lighting to be “transformed”

From Lincolnshire County Council:

As you may be aware, through the recent LCC budget process, we can no longer afford to continue to operate our street lights in the way that we do. It currently costs the county council around £5m per year to operate and maintain the county council’s street lights, with almost £3m of this spent on electricity.

We are therefore transforming the way we provide street lighting in Lincolnshire to save over £1.7m per year, reduce LCC’s carbon footprint by over 6,000 tonnes of CO2 and reduce light pollution. The project will start to deliver changes from April 2016 and is due to deliver the full benefits by the end of March 2017.

If you would like to express a view to your Parish Council on this development please either use our contact page, or contact a councillor, or come along to a Parish Council meeting.
