Impact of the Part Night Street Lighting Policy

In April 2016, the County Council began a streetlight transformation programme, in a bid to save £1.7m per year from the £5m annual streetlighting budget. As a result of the changes, around 42,000 streetlights, mainly in residential areas, are now switched off between midnight and 6am.

A scrutiny panel of councillors is now carrying out a formal review into the impact of part-night lighting, looking at topics including:

  • the environment
  • crime rates
  • fears about safety and crime
  • emergency services
  • health and public health services

the impact on businesses and the night time economy

As part of this process we are asking local communities to share any feedback, both positive and negative, in relation to the impact of the introduction of part night streetlighting.

All feedback received will be taken into consideration by the panel when considering its recommendations for the council’s decision-making executive. However, while this may include amendments to the policy, the available budget would not allow for a wholesale reversal of the changes.

To complete the online survey, visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/streetlighting Alternatively, call 01522 782070, Or email, Scrutiny@lincolnshire.gov.uk

Information may also be submitted by post to:

Democratic Services, Lincolnshire County Council County Offices, Newland, Lincoln LN1 1YL

All responses must be received by 5pm on Friday 5 January.

The scrutiny panel aims to seek views and evidence to help inform the outcome of the review. We would welcome your input and be grateful if you could also share this information with people in your community and other contacts.

Yours faithfully,

Councillor Angela Newton (Chairman) & Councillor Steve Kirk (Vice-Chairman)

Have you noticed a bright yellow cabinet at the top of the community centre car park?

Well – if so, you have spotted our new community AED (Automated External Defibrillator) which is now operational.

You can find out more about this new lifesaving equipment that we have in the village here.

Whilst we hope this equipment never needs to be used, it is reassuring for the village and it’s visitors to know that the equipment is available if required.

Have you spotted a fault or something wrong with the highway network that requires fixing?

The County Council has Service Centre Advisors who can help with a wide range of questions and can look up what action has been taken with reported faults and enquiries between 08:00-18:00 Monday to Friday.

This could be potholes, street lights that are not working and broken or missing drain covers.

You can easily report a fault yourself on the council’s website. The best way to do this is to log it on the web portal at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/faultreporting .

There are other ways to contact the Highways service to ask question, and to find out what they do (and also what they don’t!) deal with. You can find all the information on the Lincolnshire County Council’s leaflet here “How To Conact Highways”, which you can find Here.

“North Kesteven District Council is joining with other councils in Lincolnshire to campaign for a fairer funding deal for our area. If councils in Lincolnshire received the average funding for council areas in England, the region would benefit from £116 million extra funding for services, every year.

This could help pay for new infrastructure and valued council services. For example, £116 million could pay for a bypass scheme or major road improvement schemes across the area every year. A small proportion of that funding could provide superfast fibre broadband to every business in the area.

With any additional funds North Kesteven District Council would be in a stronger position to provide even more much needed affordable and rural housing optioms, opportunities for jobs growth and business development and even more services in support of healthy vibrant communities than it does already through its robust financial planning.

Councils in Lincolnshire have seen huge cuts to their Government funding over recent years and the cost of providing services is increasing. Council leaders are meeting with local MPs and government ministers to set out the case strongly for a fair deal for Lincolnshire.

You can help Lincolnshire councils get more money for your local services, by contacting your MP and joining the campaign for fairer funding at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/fairerfunding.”
