On Thursday 17th July 2014 Sue Howes, Labour County Councillor for Northfleet & Gravesend West asked a question at Kent County Council full council meeting on Street Lights or to be more accurate the lack of them in the borough.
Here’s the full transcript of her question.
Question to Mr. Brazier lead member for Environment & Transport:
Mr. Brazier is no doubt aware of the high level of complaint by residents of Gravesham in relation to the "Safe and Sensible Street Lighting" initiative. Residents have voiced particular concern about street lights being switch off after midnight in minor roads, alleyways and other routes that are used by pedestrians to get to/from work or where there is an on-going problem with anti-social behavior. Would Mr. Brazier please advise members whether consideration was given to the position of a street light; pedestrian usage; or the surrounding environment to determine whether a light should remain lit and would he also advise members whether this initiative had the positive support of Kent Police, Kent Fire and Kent Ambulance services.
