Moor Road Street Lighting

Street lighting Moor Road #Prudhoe

Following on from discussions with residents who raised concerns regarding the lack of street lighting along Moor Road ( bet Moor Grange & Humbles Wood)
A petition was electronically signed by many residents who wished to have street lighting installed.

The grounds were mainly based upon health & safety and also safeguarding.

On Tuesday 9th January 2018 the petition was submitted to the Tynedale Local Area Council and a detailed presentation was made by the lead petitioner.

The request for lighting was supported by Gordon & Ken

An NCC officer provided a report which showed that the cost of 15 street lights and columns with led lanterns would be £37,500

Gordon added information to the request to say that no contribution from the developers was asked for re lighting at the planning stage and gave an outline of a series of issues that he had ‘inherited ‘ relating to the construction site which he was dealing with.

He went onto say that he was so concerned about the issues that he had taken the Leader of NCC Cllr Peter Jackson to the area to ask for his support.

Cllr Jackson was at the LAC and was supportive of the application.

Some residents have said that they were told the work was to be carried out a long time ago but Gordon explained he could not find anything to back this up.

The Councillors present agreed to the application and requested that the work be carried out.

The time scale will have to be finalised and a contribution from Gordon & Kens annual allowance may be needed to support the work.

Getting a fair share for Tynedale !!
