In the last 24 hours over 5600 people have read this post on social mediastreetlight about street lighting in Spennymoor.

A full list of streets has been obtained via Freedom of Information request from the Spennymoor Independents showing where new LED lights have been or will soon be fitted within the township.

The link below gives details of everything we need to know and is for a change a comprehensive reply from DCC. Please note the sentence in the document –

“The Council has the power but not the duty to light the adopted highway under the Highways Act 1980. ”
