Street Lighting Consultation Has Begun

Kent Light

As of 21st September Kent County Council are conducting a consultation on the conversion of 118,000 street lights to Light Emitting Diode (LED). The consultation will ask people whether they would prefer the current level of service provided by part time lighting, or all night lighting.

There has been considerable public concern since the previous lighting system was switched to part time lighting. It is not just a matter of crime but also the hazardous nature of travelling to work at early hours of the morning.

Sittingbourne and Sheppey Labour do not want people to miss out on this new consultation on LED lighting.
