Have your say on street lights

Residents are being asked by Ponteland Town Council’s highways working party to suggest areas where new or additional street lighting is required.

Suggestions will be passed on to Northumberland County Council, which is consulting on a three-year phased countywide programme of replacing street lights with LEDs in order to achieve cost savings and energy efficiencies, although there is no guarantee that all requests would be acted upon.

All suggestions should be sent to the authority by telephone on 01661 825092, email (enquiries@ponteland-tc.gov.uk) or post: Unit 1 Meadowfield Court, Meadowfield Industrial Estate, Ponteland, NE20 9SD.
