North Somerset

Post by Deimos »

I see on this evenings BBC local area news that North Somerset are considering turning off all their street lights between midnight and 05:00 am (or some time early in the morning). Apparently they are massively overspent, need to save money and the electricity bill for street lighting is "hurting".

Only being considered at the moment so anybody supporting such a move might want to let them know of your support. On the news report there were a couple of "see how it goes" and several against (didn't watch it that closely and don't remember any pro opinions expressed). Apparently it will be causing people returning from night clubs difficulty when trying to find taxi cabs !!! apparently they are also watching how similar things are going in Essex.

I tend to think being vocal supporting such moves will help them happen.
