At the recent meeting of Full Council in the town Hall, Cllr Nick Sandford asked a question on the state of street lighting in Walton.
He spoke about the Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) in Mountsteven Avenue where the lighting has only just been repaired after a year out of action!
Nick also asked the cabinet member responsible what can be done about the lights on and near the Rhubarb Bridge, many of which had been not working for over three months!
“Its amazing what asking a question at a public meeting can do. Within days I had several council officers contacting me about the problems. The MUGA is now sorted out, fingers crossed, but apparently they need a road closure to fix some of the big lights near the Rhubarb bridge.
“But rest assured, I will keep raising the issue, until we have all of the lights working again.”
If you find a street light which is out of action, please call the Council on 747474 and report it. It’s best to quote the number painted on the column of the light or alternatively say which is the nearest house.
