Street lighting in St Leonards to come under the spotlight

An exhibition will be showcasing proposed changes to street lighting in an area of St Leonards.

The event in Silverhill will give people the chance to find out more about the switch from old-style orange and yellow lights to modern, energy-efficient white LED lanterns.

It is being held at St Luke’s United Reformed Church Hall, in Alma Terrace, on Saturday, August 2 from 9am to noon.

East Sussex County Council is replacing around 5,500 old orange and yellow street lights in Hastings and St Leonards as part of a drive to reduce its energy budget for the whole of East Sussex by £885,000 over the next three years and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by around 2,800 tonnes.

The council has already saved around £340,000 a year and reduced its CO2 consumption by 2,000 tonnes. More details on the changeover in Hastings and St Leonards, which is expected to continue until Spring 2015, are available online at www.eastsussex.gov.uk/streetlights, by visiting Hastings Library, in Claremont, or by calling 01273 337162.
