Beginning over a year ago, Hardwick Parish Council has been in dialogue with Hills, the developers of Capstone Fields to improve the Lighting around the entrance to the development and along St Neots Road to the corner of Hall Drive. We are pleased to publish a schematic (see below) showing the extent of the new lighting. We originally asked for new lighting down to and including the corner of Millers Way but this has not yet been agreed.
Just so the village is clear, neither South Cambs District Council not Cambridge County Council support the installation of any new lighting in the village to remedy perceived dark areas and inform us they have no statutory duty to do so.Please bear in mind what is sometimes seen as poor lighting can be the interference of overhead tree cover. Let us know where you believe a tree is obscuring lighting.
Please find below notice from the Parish Council. Residents and businesses along St Neot’s road will be contacted about any comments on the matter, so please keep an eye out for a leaflet or avid Parish Councillor to have a chat.
