The Director of City Development submitted a report which presented an update on the progress made with regard to street lighting energy saving, which explored options for further energy saving measures, and which sought approval to undertake public consultation on further energy saving measures.
In considering the submitted report, a Board Member highlighted his objection to the Street Lighting Energy Saving Programme, and in acknowledging the comments made, Members discussed the effect of the programme to date and the proposal to undertake public consultation regarding options for further energy saving measures.
With regard to the public consultation exercise which was proposed, it was suggested that a view from West Yorkshire Police and/or Safer Leeds regarding the street lighting energy saving programme could potentially be incorporated into such consultation.
(a) That the progress of the selective part-night street lighting contribution towards energy savings, be noted;
(b) That the proposal to undertake public consultation in order to explore options for further energy saving measures, be approved;
(c) That it be noted that the Chief Officer (Highways and Transportation) will be responsible for the implementation of such matters.
(Under the provisions of Council Procedure Rule 16.5, Councillor Golton required it to be recorded that he abstained from voting on the decisions referred to within this minute)
