  • I had cause to walk to Danson Stables yesterday evening at 7pm. There was only one light working along the whole route from the entrance on Danson Road to the Stables car park. Without any other lighting in the vicinity the path was pitch black, I could not see where I was walking nor could I see if anyone was lurking around. I felt very vulnerable.

    The road in the park is where the lighting is, but I was aware that although you have installed a path parallel to it, there is no lighting dedicated to the path that goes through trees & has a hedge running alongside it.

    I note someone else reported this issue in July 2021 & here I am raising the same issue three months later. Please resolve this problem.
