Parish street lights to be switched off

Councillors have agreed to switch off the street lights in 93 more Derbyshire parishes during the early hours to save cash and energy.

A meeting of Derbyshire County Council on March 19 approved the second phase of its ‘part night’ lighting scheme. Among the parishes affected are Alderwasley, Hazelwood, Shottle, Turnditch, Crich, Duffield, Holbrook, Horsley Woodhouse and Kilburn.
