Street Light at Crossgates

Crossgates Hallbankgate


This light was damaged in 2017 and Carlisle City Council removed it at the time for safety reasons and despite  numerous requests we haven't until now received any firm answers.

The reasons given 1/  The verge is on the deeds of the houses at Crossgates and as such the owner has to give permission.  He did not.

                            2/    The City Council did cost repositioning the lamp on the other side of the road but decided that it was not cost effective so declined to do it.

                            3/     Unfortunately the Parish Council was not even consulted and therefore  had no impute.
