Council to upgrade village street lights

Sodium vs. LED lighting

Cheshire East Council has confirmed that they will be upgrading a large number of street lights in the village by converting them to LEDs.

Councillor Craig Browne said "With financial assistance from the European Local Energy Assistance (ELENA) programme, Cheshire East Council is currently investing in more energy-efficient street lighting across the borough, by upgrading to Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology."

It must be cheaper to replace all the lights than to fix the rd or pay for all the new tyres
