Save Our Street Lights

Controversial County Council proposals to switch off a large number of street lights between midnight and 6am in Cambridge have been met with anger from local residents.

The Cambridge Liberal Democrats are campaigning against the blackout in an effort to keep residents safe.


Sign our petition at the bottom of this page and spread the word! We need to stop the blackout of Cambridge

Without street lights, people are unable to travel around safely at night, while cyclists will be in danger as roads become more hazardous to use.

Lib Dem County Council leader, Lucy Nethsingha said, 'Turning the lights off during the early hours is dangerous and highly irresponsible. With such a high number of students and late-night commuters in Cambridge, I'm amazed anyone thinks this is a viable option'

The Lib Dems want Cambridge to be sociable and safe, a city where residents can take advantage of all the leisure, culture and entertainment facilities which are on offer.  

This is why we are campaigning against the Cambridge blackout and favour either keeping the lights on altogether, or opting to dim them in order to maintain enough light to keep late night travelers safe. If you agree, please sign the petition bellow.
