Bin Brook footpath solar lights consultation

Consultation runs from 5 February 2018, 12:00am to 11 March 2018, 11:59pm

Introduction and background

Solar-powered stud lights are a cost-effective way of lighting paths. We propose installing them on the path alongside Bin Brook between Cranmer Road and Gough Way.

As well as helping people find their way, the lights will improve the safety and usability of the pathway.

We propose to install about 40 stud lights along the centreline of the footpath, between 8 and 12 metres apart.

Post any correspondence to Development Unit, Cambridge City Council, PO Box 700, Cambridge CB1 0JH.

Additional information and documents

The solar-powered stud lights we propose to install have been trialled successfully on Coe Fen and Lammas Land, and further along this proposed route.

The latest model of light incorporates a ‘bat hat’, which reduces the upward light spillage by around 98%. This makes it a friendlier option for nocturnal wildlife.

Next steps

The results of this survey will enable councillors to decide how the project should be implemented.
