I have over a period of time received concerns from residents about the poor performing floodlights in the Miller's Wynd car park that have not been functioning properly.
I have raised this with the Team Leader, Parking & Sustainable Transport, at the City Council, who has now updated me as follows :
"My colleague from the Street Lighting Partnership went out to the Miller's Wynd car park to assess the situation.
He reported that while there is power to the lighting column that holds the floodlights, it is difficult to access because of the trees and therefore almost impossible to replace the lanterns safely.
He has recommended an alternative lighting solution (new column, new floodlights, new location) which he thinks would be more effective in bringing the car park lighting up to the expected standard and allow for future maintenance.
I have asked for a cost for the work and funds allowing will propose that we implement the new plan over the summer."
