Commissioner have agreed to provide funding to the Council (under
the name ‘Localities Funding’ for the delivery of the
Home Office Safer Streets Funding Programme).
3.2 Part of the funding has been allocated to improving Street lighting in Arnot Hill Park. The funding is split over two years with £46 k allocated to the financial year 2023/2024 and £49k in the financial year 2024/2025. It is time limited and must be spent in these financial years.
3.3 As the grant funding is time limited. Any delay in implementing this scheme might have an impact on the delivery of the scheme. This could potentially also cause reputational damage to the Council.
We could opt to replace the existing columns
at the same time, meaning we could use lighting heads from other
suppliers, but this would incur and additional cost of around
£5K per column and significantly reduce the number of units
we could replace.
