This is the first time that I have blogged on this subject. however, it was one that came up often during the election and Essex County council seem to regard this as a one-way “no brainer” to save money. It is not. There are definitely places where the lights need to be kept on, either through the night or for longer than currently.
UKIP members of TCD council are solidly behind this campaign and we do what we can within the council. However, lighting is an Essex CC responsibility so it will help if as many as possible can make their views heard. One way is to sign the Change.Org petition that can be found here: http://www.change.org/p/essex-county-council-turn-our-lights-on?utm_source=guides&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=petition_created
I hope that as many as possible of you will feel able to sign.
