There’s still time for High Peak residents to have their say on two consultations currently being run by Derbyshire County Council.

Residents have until August 8 to have their say on changes to the way street lights across the county are maintained, and until August 9 to make their views known on proposed changes to the mobile library service.

The street lighting consultation is asking for views on changes including: only replacing failed light bulbs in priority locations, which locations should be priority locations, investing in LED light bulbs and dimming LED light bulbs in some locations at night.

Deputy cabinet member for jobs, economy and transport Cllr Dean Collins, said: “I know that many people will be unhappy with what we are proposing but we really have no choice.”

The authority is also looking at making changes to its mobile library service, which currently consists of two large maximum capacity vehicles (MCVs) and eight smaller standard mobile libraries, costing £720,000 a year to run.

A consultation has been running since January with the second stage now asking residents for their views on a proposal to maintain two standard mobile libraries working to a four-weekly timetable.

Have your say online before August 9 at Questionnaires are also available in all county council branch and mobile libraries and GP surgeries.
