County Hall NorthallertonAs an energy reduction scheme, the North Yorkshire County Council are proposing to introduce a street lighting reduction scheme in Harrogate.

If the proposal is agreed, then certain street lights in some areas of Harrogate will be switched off  between midnight and 5am.

Residents in Granby, High Harrogate and Low Harrogate can call into the Fairfax Centre on 28 June, between 6pm and 7pm, to view the maps of the three wards which indicate the lighting columns which are proposed to be turned off.

Councillor John Fox said :

This will give residents the opportunity to see which street lights are to be turned off and they will be able to give me their comments as part of the Countys consultation.
