Street Lighting

In April 2016, the County Council began a streetlight transformation programme, in a bid to save £1.7m per year from the £5m annual street lighting budget. As a result of the changes, around 42,000 streetlights, mainly in residential areas, are now switched off between midnight and 6am.

A scrutiny panel of councillors is now carrying out a formal review into the impact of part-night lighting. (see attached LCC letter for additional information)

Local residents, businesses and organisations are being asked to complete a questionnaire on the impact of the part-night street lighting to assist the scrutiny panel with their review. The questionnaire as well as further information about the policy can be found at:

Please note the deadline for submitting a response is 5pm on 5th January 2018

Fairer Funding for Lincolnshire

Caythorpe and Frieston Parish Council are joining other councils in Lincolnshire to campaign for a fairer funding deal for our area.  If councils here received the average funding for the council areas in England the region would benefit from £116 million extra funding for service every year.

This could help pay for new infrastructure and valued council services.  For example £116 million could pay for a bypass scheme, improvements to key roads, fibre broadband for all businesses and more, every year.

Councils in Lincolnshire have seen huge cuts to their Government funding and the cost of providing services is increasing.  Council leaders are meeting with local MPs and government ministers to set out the case strongly for a fair deal for Lincolnshire.

You can help Lincolnshire councils get more money for your local services by contacting your MP and joining the campaign for fair funding at
