While Mayor Richardson’s plan to reduce energy is commendable, has he considered the safety aspect of his proposal to turn off streetlights in Byron?
In a town with few footpaths and plenty of potholes, residents walking home late at night will be in a precarious position.
Further, women will be especially vulnerable walking through darkened streets.
Surely there are other ways to economise and protect our precious resources (metered beachfront showers would be a start) without compromising the safety of residents?
