On Millington Road, Street Lights 5 and 6 failed several weeks ago making visibility poor for drivers and pedestrians. May also pose a security concern as it could encourage vandalism and burglaries.

Elderly and disabled people from the Westgate House Care Home are struggling to avoid obstacles in the footpath and to stay on the footpath, due to it getting dark before 17:00. They rely totally upon the streetlights when it is dark. We don't want any regrettable accidents.

After 2 months of waiting the lights are still not working. Will we qualify for a reduction in our council tax ?
