Street Lighting Survey Responses

May 3, 2024 | Featured

The Parish Council has carried out a community survey about whether we should seek to change the arrangements for street lighting in the village.

Most responses support some form of reduced lighting. Extra lighting was requested at the Church steps onto School Lane. Some residents said the street lighting causes sleep disturbance. DCC says that residents can can request shields, or highlight an issue via the DCC customer reporting page https://www.devon.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/street-lighting/ or email streetlightingteam-mailbox@devon.gov.uk

DCC has responded that it will be looking at trialling dimming, it is planning change over to warm light LEDs this year, and that shields can be fitted.

The Clerk is asking how affected residents can access shielding and for a cost for DCC to install lighting at the steps. It may be possible to install a different type of local lighting solution at the steps.
