AMEY NEED TO BE MORE FLEXIBLE
I find it very sad that Amey Highways cannot be more flexible when it comes to their street lighting upgrading plans.
Their attitude which appears to be we do not consult with residents or Councillors, due to the fact no resident wants a lamppost near their home cannot be right. Clearly they cannot please everyone but they need to make more effort in my view.
I understand they are bound by standards which are of a national nature but in these days of so called devolution where more decisions are to be made at a more local level and more consultation should take place these, their views do not make much sense.
I am currently battling with Amey Highways regarding lighting issues in a couple of locations where moving a lamppost would ease problems for local residents and no one would object.
However this whole subject needs a review at a much higher level.
