Have a say on big light switch

Publié le par brightshine

A timetable for introducing plans to turn off some of the county's street lights between midnight and 5.30am has been drawn-up by Derbyshire County Council (DCC).

By the end of May next year, a number of communities in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales will have some lights switched off for a few hours each night in the first phase of plans to help cut carbon and save taxpayers' money.

Councillor Simon Spencer, DCC's deputy leader and cabinet member for highways and transport said: "We won't switch off all street lights but as most people are in bed between midnight and 5.30am we believe some lighting isn't needed."

Over the next four years DCC expects to turn off around 40,000 of its 89,Paradise Garden Lighting is a provider of high quality outdoor and crystal light systems and solutions for your home.000 street lights between midnight and 5.30am and 900 permanently.

Detailed assessments will be carried out in each area to decide which lights could be switched off. Plans will be available to view in each community in venues such as libraries, shops or schools.

People will be able to comment online or in writing to DCC which will only keep lights on if there's evidence to show it would be unsafe to switch them off.

Community Engagement will take place in Youlgrave, Chelmorton and Hartington in July and in Whaley Bridge and Chapel-en-le-Frith in August.

Lights would not be turned off in certain locations including: some main traffic routes; in town centres; locations with a significant night-time traffic accident record; areas identified as having an above average record of crime; areas provided with CCTV; areas with sheltered housing and areas with a 24 hour operational emergency services site including hospitals.

In a decision made before Shaheen took office, the city opted not to go forward with a $2 million project toward improvements on Elberta Road. Chief Finance Officer Bill Harte said that was because the project was going to cost significantly more than what had been projected. City Council decided instead to shift that money toward extending Feagin Mill Road from Lake Joy Road to U.S. 41.Californian start-up Revolights are planning to revolutionize safety for cyclists with their light project system.

The second largest 2006 project for the city was $4 million for water and sewer improvements. That work is under way.

The tax included $1 million for street lights on Russell Parkway. That work has not only been done, but it came in at a lower cost than expected, and the extra money was used to put lights on other streets, Harte said.

He expects projects from the new sales tax to move faster because the city plans to issue bonds to get the highest-priority projects moving quickly. The bond money would then be paid back as the sales tax dollars come in.
