Bucks Street Lights: Views Needed

21 February 2012, 09:42

After a 3-year street light energy saving trial in Buckinghamshire, the council wants to know what people think about about the final 9 sites.

The pilot scheme took place at 46 places in the county and finished at the end of last year, with £250,000 saved in electricity bills.

The consultation for 37 of the sites came to an end in December with the decision on whether they will stay off still to be decided.

The data for the last few sites is currently being looked at - with Transport for Buckinghamshire asking people what they think about the recommendations.

The council says the trial has been successful in saving energy, reducing carbon emissions and light pollution.

Factors like the number of accidents, safety issues, accessibility issues and feedback from the public will be used to decide if the sites should go dark permanently.

The consultation closes on April 15
