We, the undersigned, call upon Paul Carter, Leader of Kent County Council to take every step he can to find the funding to switch on ALL our streetlights. It is outrageous and unacceptable that 2,500 lights are still not on at night across Thanet. This is due to the lack of funding to change the concrete streetlights to metal to enable the fitting of low cost LED lighting.
We demand investment for our safety!
Why is this important?
Safety should not be compromised by a lack of government funding!
No-one should be at risk due to unlit streets. LED lighting is much cheaper but concrete posts need to be changed as soon as possible.
Many residents have to be out and about after dark and none should be at risk because the streets are unlit.
How it will be delivered
Deliver in person to Paul Carter at Kent County Council
