More details are emerging of which streets will stay lit all night when Devon County Council introduces part-night lighting from April.
As the Echo revealed last week the first areas to have the lights turned out between 12.30am and 5.30am are Alphington and Cowick.
Local councillor Rod Ruffle tells Community News: “At a recent meeting the county council confirmed that lights in Cowick Lane-the bulk of it being in Alphington ward- would stay on all night. “However they also agreed that the whole of Church Road, up to St Michael’s Church would also stay on all night rather than limit it to the Alphinbrook roundabout.
“Also the section of Chudleigh Road from the church up to the Chantry Meadow mini roundabouts will remain lit.
“It was accepted that these roads are reasonably well used walking routes at night. In addition the three lights in Stone Lane which leads from the main Alphington road through to Hatherleigh Road will stay on.”
Cllr Ruffle added: “What surprised me was to discover that across the whole city there were 71 responses of which two-thirds were in favour of part time night lighting and most of the remaining one third were against.
“I did find out that the response I sent in was counted as one even though I had asked some 601 people in the ward. “Finally I would urge residents to contact me if they have any concerns or suggestions concerning their street.”
