Letter: Streetlights are not fit for purpose

Street lights are not fit for purpose.
Street lights are not fit for purpose.

The council recently replaced the streetlights in our road in Burton Agnes.

The new lamps do not give out enough light and the light does not reach the footpaths.

This will make it very dangerous for anyone walking after dark.

Properties and cars are left in almost total darkness, which I feel will encourage muggings, assaults and vandalism.

This is in the middle of summer when the nights hardly become fully dark, I dread to think what it will be like on a dark wet November night when the schoolchildren are walking home in total darkness.

I believe these lamps are not fit for purpose, and should be replaced with some that are.
