Street lights

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Approach At Primary -

Kent’s street lights could still be switched off or dimmed at night un­der plans by the county coun­cil to re­place bulbs with LED tech­nol­ogy.

The county coun­cil has be­gun a con­sul­ta­tion over a scheme in­volv­ing in­stalling LED in ev­ery street light, say­ing it will save money for the tax­payer in the long run. The three-year pro­gramme – if im­ple­mented – will be­gin re­plac­ing tra­di­tional bulbs in street lights in residential ar­eas first, fol­lowed by main roads and fi­nally town cen­tres.
