End in sight for blackouts

£40m LED plan to light streets again at night

A £40 million investment in LED technology will pave the way for a return to all-night street lighting across Herne Bay. Residential areas have been plunged into darkness overnight since Kent County Council started a cost-cutting trial in December 2013. The move to LED will spell the end of the controversial blackouts, which have sparked fears of increased crime and are not supported by police chiefs.
