Street lights on in the daytime?

Published 5 October 2006

As a result of recent damage to cables during work in the main street, the timer control of the wall-mounted lights is no longer operating. Keeping the lights on continuously is the short term solution.

This type of control is now obsolete and instead of expensive repairs to an out-dated system, it is proposed to replace the damaged circuit with floor-mounted control units that can form the basis for the next generation of street lighting.

Adopting this approach will avoid an extensive loss of supply for the village while the old circuit was repaired and will help ensure that the money spent has long term benefits.

Work is in progress to specify and commission the work required but the lights will be on continuously until this is carried out.
