Are we returning to the Dark Ages?

The controversial plans of the county coucil to permanently switch off nearly 900 Derbyshire street lights in a bid to save £400,000 a year are sending us in the East Midlands back to the dark ages.

The authority is considering turning off up to 60,000 of its 89,000 lamps between midnight and 5.30am, with one per cent – 900 – switched off permanently in some rural areas and non-residential areas.

What effect will this have on crime and people feeling safe in their communities? and what about school children affected by the permanent switch off?

Letters of concern to Derbyshire County Council please.
