Streets lights in Spelthorne

Update on night lighting in Spelthorne

Night time street lights are being switched back on in Spelthorne from Friday 23 June.

Although street lighting is the responsibility of the County Council, an agreement was made between the Leaders of Spelthorne Borough Council and Surrey County Council to reinstate night time lights in Spelthorne for an initial period of five years, on the understanding that the Borough Council would find the necessary funding.

This was approved by Surrey County Council's Cabinet on 30 May.

Cllr Ian Harvey, Leader of Spelthorne Council, said: "I am very pleased that we have been able to resolve this with the County Council. Lots of concerns were raised by residents about the switch off, many of whom are shift workers, so I am glad we have been able to respond to those concerns."
