Today Rob met with representatives from the council, UK Power Networks (UKPN) and Mitie to discuss the street lighting on the estate. As far as we know, there is only one street lamp that is currently not working – number 026. It was agreed that this would be reconnected to the supply by running a cable to the next lamp along the road.
We also discussed the missing posts numbered 001 and 005. Lamp 001 is at one end of Coburg Crescent and is much needed, so this will be replaced. To avoid obstructing the footpath, it will be installed in the flower bed. Lamp 005 has largely been made redundant by the installation of new flood lamps attached to Chalner House, so this will not be replaced. UKPN will disconnect the supply and Mitie will remove the stump.
