The Community in Brandon and Langley Moor are protesting against Durham County Council’s decision to remove street lights along Brandon Lane. Parents say it makes the walk to and from school dangerous.
Every day many people including children walk or cycle along this road after dark or early in the morning. Without the lights it is pitch black, intimidating and dangerous.
The Council undertook a risk assessment on a bright sunny morning in May but on a Winter evening, with speeding traffic and a dangerous bend residents backed by their Labour Party County Councillors Paul Taylor and John Turnbull are demanding this is reviewed.
City of Durham CLP members joined the local protesters on 30th November.
