‘failed to con­sult’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Night Lights -

A crit­i­cal re­port on Kent County Coun­cil’s street­light switch-off pub­lished in May said the county coun­cil failed to con­sult prop­erly and kept coun­cil­lors in the dark about the costs.

It con­cluded the process was tar­nished, had the feel of a “tick-box” ex­er­cise and lacked trans­parency.

Peo­ple can take part in the con­sul­ta­tion by vis­it­ing www.kent.gov.uk/street­lights and com­plet­ing the online con­sul­ta­tion ques­tion­naire.

The con­sul­ta­tion doc­u­ment and ques­tion­naire are also avail­able in Easy Read and Word for­mats on the web­site or on re­quest by e-mail al­ter­na­tive­for­mats@kent.gov. uk, or phone 03000 421553 Text Re­lay: 18001 03000 421553
