Night lighting in Spelthorne to be restored

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

Night time street lights are being switched back on in Spelthorne from Thursday 22 June.

Although street lighting is the responsibility of the County Council, an agreement was made between the Leaders of Spelthorne Borough Council and Surrey County Council to reinstate night time lights in Spelthorne for an initial period of five years, on the understanding that the Borough Council would find the necessary funding.

This was approved by Surrey County Council's Cabinet on 30 May.

Cllr Ian Harvey, Leader of Spelthorne Council, said: “I am very pleased that we have been able to resolve this with the County Council. Lots of concerns were raised by residents about the switch off, many of whom are shift workers, so I am glad we have been able to respond to those concerns.”

    I understand the problem for night shift workers, but I have enjoyed being able to see the stars properly at night. We only lost 2 lights, as i live near the main road, where lights were left on. I wonder if there could be a compromise situation, wild life needs darkness and so do we to keep the wonder of the infinite! Who actually decided that all the lights should all be reinstated? I didn't see or hear of any discussion about this, were people surveyed, if so who were they?
