MEDIA RELEASE
Issued: January 11, 2019
 
Town council votes against paying for all-night street lights
 
Waltham Abbey Town Council has voted to not pay Essex County Council £27,236.75 so that the county council's street lights in Waltham Abbey can be switched on throughout the night for a year.

Instead, the town council is to ask residents whether the council should include a sum in its precept for 2020-21 to pay for extra policing and / or for a return to all-night street lighting.

Town and parish councils are being invited to pay the electricity costs so that the Essex County Council-owned street lights in their areas can be switched back on between 1am and 5am.

Waltham Abbey town councillors, at the council meeting on Wednesday, voted to increase the council's 2019-20 precept to £851,000 - the equivalent of a 1.5 per cent increase on the council tax bill for a Band D property (3.2p per week).

This year the Council received the final grant award of £23,708 from the Government via Epping Forest District Council for the change in the Local Council Tax Benefit Scheme.
