FORMBY Parish Council have raised worrying concerns over a proposal that could potentially see up to 18,000 street lights switched off across the borough as part of a money saving scheme.
As part of the proposals, put forward by Sefton Council, a large proportion of the street lights across Sefton could be switched off from 8pm each evening, in order to make further cost savings. ......
What do you think about the proposal to switch off the street lights in Formby to save money?
Sefton Council members are considering this question at the next Council meeting on the 5 March. The meeting is going to consider the budget and set the local Council Tax.
Switching off the street lights is one of the proposals made in order to make cuts as a result of the reduction in central government funds.
Not all the lights are affected road junctions will be exempted, but if agreed much of Sefton will be darker at night for longer.
The Sefton Council agenda for this meeting can be read in full on the website.
