COUN­CIL has rec­om­mended funds be al­lo­cated in the 2019/2020 coun­cil bud­get for the devel­op­ment of a light­ing strat­egy within CBD car parks.

An au­dit of 16 coun­cil-owned CBD car park­ing ar­eas was un­der­taken in late Oc­to­ber 2018 which found there was a to­tal of 58 lights, of which 12 were not work­ing, and were re­ported to Es­sen­tial En­ergy.

The au­dit iden­ti­fied that some tree prun­ing is re­quired, five park­ing ar­eas had no lights in­stalled, a fur­ther five car park­ing ar­eas would ben­e­fit from ad­di­tional lights to im­prove vis­i­bil­ity, and some off-road car parks may ben­e­fit from on street light­ing.
