Hampden Park drop-in will throw the spotlight on street lights

Residents in Hampden Park will be able to find out how changes to street lighting will affect them at an event on Saturday 8 June, 2013.

Street lights in residential roads in Eastbourne are being replaced with modern LED alternatives as part of a money-saving project.

The work in the town is being carried out on a ward by ward basis and residents will be given the opportunity to raise concerns and asks questions before the changes are made.

Main roads in Hampden Park will continue to be fully lit by the new lights, but street lights in residential areas will be dimmed during the night.

The planned changes have been drawn up by East Sussex County Council in consultation with Eastbourne Borough Council, Sussex Police and other stakeholders.

Changes to street lights across the county are being made in a bid to save £885,000 by 2016.

Members of East Sussex County Council’s street lighting team will be on hand to answer questions and listen to people’s concerns at the engagement event which runs from 9am to noon on Saturday 8 June, 2013, at Hampden Park Community Centre, Brodrick Road, Hampden Park.
