Lights to go out in Seaton
Money-saving exercise proposed.
THE lights could go out on Seaton – if a policy for part-night street lighting gets the go-ahead.
Devon County Council plans to change the hours streetlights are on, from all-night long to lights going off at 12.30am and coming back on at 5.30am.
Seaton Town Council discussed the proposal at its August meeting on Monday night.
Councillor Sandra Semple said: “The fact is they would turn the lights off on us because they’ve turned the lights off in every other respect.”
