Street lighting in Olives Meadow, Uckfield, is to be improved and ‘adopted’ by East Sussex County Council.
The lamps are currently provided by Uckfield Town Council, which has a policy of upgrading its lighting to official standards and passing them on to the county, with money to pay for future maintenance.
Previous upgrades have included New Road, Scarletts Close, Rocks Road, Streatfield Road, Lashbrooks Road and Oaklea Way.
Town councillors have approved the scheme which it is estimated will cost about £23,500.
The council will officially advise residents of Olives Meadow about the scheme details including:
- Location plan of the proposed new lights in relation to existing
- The new lights will be LED with upward light pollution minimised to less than 10%
- The new lanterns will be controlled by part-night photo electric cells switching off between the hours of 00.00am and 05.00am
- Lantern shields are possible if light pollution to bedrooms etc.
