Following a local residents meeting, there has been a large number of requests to turn back on our street lights after 1am. 

Many feel unsafe once the lights go out and are scared to be on the streets. You may ask why are people on the streets after this time? The answer is for many reasons, whether it be to walk their dog, walk home from work or from a night out. 

Once the lights go out it is very hard to see where you are walking and if anyone is even walking down the same road. 

The number of reported car thefts in our area is very high, and a high percentage of these happens after 1am. The main reason for this is Street Lighting! The criminals know no street lights means it is very hard for them to be identified on CCTV (even if you have a high end system). 


Please sign this petition to try to get our street lights back on in the towns of Loughton, Buckhurst Hill & surrounding areas!
